Overview FAQs Articles Locations

Pursuant to the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act (the “Act”), there are several offences which may be seen as “animal neglect”. Some of these include:

  • Failing to exercise confined animals;
  • Failing to provide food, water or shelter;
  • Failing to seek veterinary assistance;
  • Abandoning animals.

If a person is found guilty of one of these offences, a fine and/or imprisonment may handed down.

If you are being investigated for animal neglect, you may wish to contact our office and arrange an appointment to see one of our Animal Law & Pet Law Solicitors in our Sydney office. By appointment, we can also arrange a time for you to see one of our lawyers at a branch office. For a complete listing please see our "Locations" tab.
