NZ calling for animal welfare strategy proposals

New Zealand has a strong animal welfare system that is well-regarded overseas. The government is proposing changes that will build on those good foundations. The proposals are for a strategy to set the direction for the animal welfare system and for changes to the way the Animal Welfare Act 1999 operates.
