Here in New South Wales we have some of the weakest animal protection laws in the country.
Most people who abuse and harm animals get off with just a slap on the wrist and are able to continue to torture and harm animals in our neighbourhoods and communities again.
Like you, I love animals and believe they should be able to live their lives safe from neglect, cruelty and abuse. That’s why I am fighting for strong laws that protect animals including:
- Recognising animals as sentient beings who can be victims of crime
- Introducing psychological assessment for people charged with serious animal cruelty offences
- Removing gun licenses from anyone found guilty of animal cruelty
- Increasing penalties to deter future acts of animal abuse
I need your help to make sure the voices of suffering animals are heard through the halls of NSW Parliament.
Together we have the power to make real change and ensure our State Government takes urgent action to protect our animals by updating our weak animal protection laws.
