    Sponsorship opportunities


    We couldn't do what we do without the generous support each year of our Workshop sponsors, member support partners and trade exhibitors. 

    There is high demand for products and services that support AMOs in the field. AMOs show keen interest in new, innovative or helpful Animal Management products and services. 

    If you are interested in sponsorship opportunities with AIAM, please contact our President for further information.  




    Legislation updates

    A number of states have recently updated their animal management legislation. 

     

    In Victoria, there were recent changes to the Domestic Animals Act 1994 due to the Domestic Animal Amendment (Puppy Farm and Pet Shops) Act 2017.

    In South Australia, changes to the Dog and Cat Management Act 1995 have been and continue to be implemented. 

    In New South Wales, the Companion Animals Regulation 2008 is currently under review.


    New award program announced 

    AIAM is a proud silver rescue supporter of the Jetpets Companion Animal Rescue Awards.

    Pets4life is pleased to introduce the inaugural companion animal rescue awards to recognise and celebrate the most inspiring examples of rehabilitation and re-homing of companion animals Australia wide.

    “Every animal deserves a good life, not a life of existence. That’s where rescue groups come in; giving pets a second chance,” said Cathy Beer, pet rescue advocate and founder of Pets4Life, an independent education resource for cat and dog guardians and those thinking of getting a pet.

    “Thanks to the great work done by rescue groups and animal shelters, the rate of companion animals being adopted or fostered by Australians has increased over the years,” said Cathy.

    “These awards celebrate their hard work and success in giving companion animals a second chance in a loving home! We thank our sponsors for their support!”

    For updates on the awards program please visit www.rescueawards.com.au
