Australian Cat Action Plan
The consultation period for the Australian Cat Action Plan has closed and a national meeting of stakeholders was held in Melbourne in August 2014. Following the consultation and stakeholder meeting process a number of resources have been developed or updated such as a Frequently Asked Questions resource, Draft 3 of the Cat Action Plan and a report of the feedback received. These documents and further information on the plan and the process moving forward can be found here. We would like to thank the representatives of the national stakeholders that have been involved in the process for their commitment and passion for the issue and we look forward to working with them into the future.

These national stakeholder groups included:
    Australian Cat Federation
    Australian National Cats
    Australian Institute of Animal Management
    Animals Australia
    Australian Wildlife Rehabilitation Council
    Australian Veterinary Association
    RSPCA Australia
    National Animal Rescue Groups of Australia

Endorsement and suggestions for modifications to Draft 3 are now being sought from these national bodies by 30th November 2014. More information on areas identified at the meeting as needing further consultation is also being gathered.


Following finalisation of the plan, G2Z will work with governments and stakeholders to progress implementation. Progress with the plan will be reviewed approximately biannually, and developed as needed. This document will then become the blueprint for all to use in negotiations with relevant governments and organisations to develop a cohesive national system to reduce the proliferation of abandoned and poorly managed cats in Australia.
