New draft POCTA

6 posts in this topic

asal   

BIT astonished no one has posted or commented?

 

if this is passed no one will be able to keep an entire female unless they can guarantee she will never experience  less than 15 deg C or 30 deg C. page 17, don't forget your not allowed to keep them in your home has  to be purpose built.

 

many australian homes do not have air conditioning so this will mean only puppy farms with airconditioned facalities on top of all the other demands will be breeding . this does not reduce puppy farms it creates them

just spotted this add for a property for sale, the future already up and running, wonder if it has "RSPCA approved" on the gate?

There was a thread in general discussion a few weeks ago about it

i just received a letter from dogs nsw about it, says "within 2 years, you will be required to hold at least a certificate II in animal studies and comply with ongoing training including those who assist in feeding/watering etc"

 

n that applies even if you only have one?

 

correct me if I am wrong, but this does not apply to rspca staff, not even the special constables who have to power to 
'form the opinion" an animal should be seized?  They only need to be " preferably ex police with prosecution experience willing to undertake animal care course," (the exact words I have copied and pasted from previous employment adds) attend the course, they do not have to pass, this was told to a tafe teacher of the Animal care course

How can they keep missing the point? If you want a pet suitable for a family then raising it in a family style environment will give it a greater chance of being a successful family pet. What does raising it in a big air conditioned shed with hundreds of other barking animals and then removing it while it is still a baby from its mother and litter mates do? Prepare it for the pound? I don't disagree with formal training but some of the staff's learnings wont equate to squat for the dogs. There wont be the staff to animal ratio to do many of the things considered necessary to raise a happy, healthy, well socialised puppy.

If the letter I received from Dogs Nsw is anything to go by if the minister signs this , its the end of hobby breeders, paves the way for only factory farms.

 

yet the pollies and even the members of all breed groups, both pure and x bred as well as the rest of australia has been duped into believing the constant revamps were to shut down puppy farms, not create them as the only place that will have or afford to have the infrastructure to meet these requirements.

 

It was 32 deg in my kitchen both days this weekend, does this mean I cannot rise a child in my home?

 

certainly cannot raise a puppy or a kitten according to this.

 

unless everyone takes the time to ring and write to their local pollie this is the end of all but factory farms. PETA/rspca must be dancing with glee.

That is scary!  At least in Victoria there was the opportunity to lobby pollies effectively, since it had to go through Parliament.
