Right to Release

New South Wales

Right to release

Passed in NSW!

With the help of every one of our supporters, the NSW Government finally listened, making the release of cats and dogs mandatory, after their use in research. On top of this they have implemented a system to make sure animals are not kept for longer than 3 years for research purposes. You can read exactly what they have passed in the Animal Research Amendment (Right to Release) Act 2022 here. This new legislation was put into place from the 25th of November 2022.

Thank you to everyone who signed our petition and shared our social media posts, you did it! Now lets make it happen nationally!
