New state Animal Welfare Advisory Committee

MAYLANDS Labor MP Lisa Baker has welcomed a new state Animal Welfare Advisory Committee to improve standards of care, use and treatment of animals.

A longtime animal welfare advocate, Ms Baker  says “the committee will help ensure WA’s animal welfare system meets modern community and  scientific expectations. “They will provide advice on animal welfare policy, legislation, regulations and standards, community education, training standards for animal welfare inspectors and research.” 

Ms Baker is pictured with Mark Hayman, Chris Rafferty and Tofu the goat who won an RSPCA animal award for his recovery from a leg injury and going on to become an ambassador for Possum Valley Animal Sanctuary.
