Border Wars Initiative

Border Wars

The trade and movement of animals is not illegal but the NSPCA continually expresses its concern about the standards of care in the movement of animals both within our own country and through our ports of entry/exit. The welfare issues encountered involve sub-standard crates, insufficient ventilation, overcrowding, long periods of travelling and stand-overs in airport warehouses due to delays in legal clearances, the incorrect loading and handling of crates containing live animals as well as long-distance road transport, overcrowding and associated injuries. We work extensively to ensure that animals are handled humanely and with compassion.
