And my dog comes too...new approaches to living with our pets
Wed. 26 April 2017, 9:00 am – 11:00 am AEST
Our attitudes to living with our pets are changing. As we look at other countries we see what is possible, the opportunities for our pets to be with us in many different places. We would like to be able to take our pets with us, whether it be to a park, a café, a shop or bank, a gallery, a government shopfront, an office, on a train or a public bus. What about owner pets visiting owners who are long-stay patients in hospital?
This session will look at what is happening in countries where there is better pet access than in Australia and what could be done here. It will look at ways to improve pet access and constraints; and responsible pet ownership as better access would require a strong focus on responsible pet ownership. Audience input and suggestions will be encouraged.
Chaired by Mary Porter AM, speakers are Meegan Fitzharris MLA, Minister for Territory and City Services and Minister for Health, Tammy Ven Dange, CEO, RSPCA ACT, Jan Phillips, President, Pets and Positive Ageing Inc, Kate Cvetanovski, Execeutive Director, Northside Community Service, Veterinarian and 2016 ACT finalist for Australian of the Year Dr Alison Taylor BVSc (Hons) and the Manager of Domestic Animal Services.
