mpi submissions

The Ministry for Primary Industries is proposing new regulations to improve animal welfare in New Zealand.

More than 80 major issues have been addressed, including:

  • the care of bobby calves
  • the use of prong collars
  • live exports
  • tail docking
  • farrowing crates
  • dogs left in vehicles

SPCA New Zealand encourages every animal lover to have their say before submissions close on May 19. Please take the time to read the consultation documents and make your own submission on the issues that are important to you.
