Assembly to consider new ban on puppy farms and intensive animal breeding

Puppy farms and intensive breeding of domestic animals will be banned under new legislation to be introduced to the Legislative Assembly on Thursday.

The new protections for animals forced to breed for the pet market is designed to stop abuses similar to those seen in New South Wales and Victoria in recent years and follows ACT laws enacted in October 2013 which established fines of as much as $11,000 for breaches of a code of practice.
