The Dog and Cat Management (Miscellaneous) Amendment Bill 2015 was introduced into Parliament on 18 November 2015.
This Bill is based on the draft Bill that was consulted on from 19 April to 26 June 2015. Comments and submissions were received from over 1800 organisations and individuals including through the YourSAy survey. These comments and submissions were analysed and considered in the finalisation of the Bill. Results of the survey can be found at this link. The Government Response to the recommendations of the Citizen's Jury on Unwanted Dogs and Cats (report found here) also informed the Bill.
The Bill as introduced to the Legislative Council can be obtained here and the Second Reading Speech, with details of each of the clauses, is available at this here. Parliamentary debate on the Bill will occur in the first part of 2016.
To all Cat lovers
It is with much sadness that we advise that last Wednesday Alan Norris lost everything in fires. Not only did the fire destroyed his house and property but a transformer outside the house exploded and went through the roof of the house and set the inside on fire.
Alan is a group 1 and 2 Judge with GCCFSA , President of the Cat Fancier’s Society and he has bred Persians , Devon Rex and Siamese. He has supported GCCFSA clubs by judging over many years. He is also a dog Judge and a horse Judge breeding both pugs, Cavalier King Charles Spaniels and Ponies. He showed cats, dogs and ponies and Judged Horses at Adelaide Royal Show
He is staying with friends in Gawler who are supporting him with organising clothes, insurance and Centrelink.
At this time Governing Council is accepting cash donations for Alan as he comes to grips with the situation and makes decisions about his future.
