New Law on Animal Welfare

Judges can now ban a person from having a pet under new legislation, that is written law, about the care of animals.

The Animal Health and Welfare Act 2013, which comes into effect today, puts a legal obligation on animal owners to ensure their pets are taken care of.

The Minister for Agriculture says the new law, which also introduces stricter punishments for convictions of animal cruelty, will allow for early intervention to protect animal welfare.
