Pause for paws – feedback on dog and cat laws in WA 

The Dog Amendment Act 2013 and Cat Act 2011 commenced five years ago. Both Acts are now being reviewed to see how effective the changes have been in the control and management of cats and dogs in Western Australia.  

The department has released a consultation paper to gather feedback from the community, local governments and stakeholders about how the 2013 changes are working, whether they have been effective, and to identify any areas that could be improved. 

Community and stakeholder feedback is essential to provide well-informed feedback on the impact of the changes across the broader community, industry and government sector.  


You can provide feedback in the following ways: 

  • Email your submission to: 
  • Post your submission to:
    Cat and Dog statutory review 
    Department of Local Government, Sport and Cultural Industries
    PO Box 8349

Submissions close 4 August 2019.
