Introducing Animal Care Australia

Who is Animal Care Australia (ACA)?

Petcover would like to introduce a new partnership with Animal Care Australia (ACA).

Who is Animal Care Australia?

Animal Care Australia was founded in early 2018 to represent the interests of animal keepers and breeders throughout Australia.

Originally founded to speak on behalf of owners of pets and companion animals, Animal Care Australia quickly recognised there is a need to expand our purview to include all animals held in ‘captive’ care except for commercial livestock. The association has a strong committee composed of representatives for each major animal group – dogs, cats, birds, horses, reptiles, hobby farm animals, small mammals, native mammals, and exhibited animals.

Today, 69% of Australian households own pets. It is estimated almost 29 million pets are kept in the care of our community. 90% of Australian households have had a pet at some time.

Animal Care Australia’s position is to promote welfare education over-regulation.

Our goal is to promote and encourage high standards in all interactions with the animals in our care, to encourage responsible pet ownership, and respectful treatment of all animals in our community.

We support and consult in the continued development of animal welfare law at all levels of government, including federal, state, and local governments.

As a society, we have a responsibility to provide ‘whole of life’ welfare and protection for all animals living within our care.

Petcover Australia is proud to be supporting and partnering with Animal Care Australia.
