NDM7840 Darren Millar (Clwyd West)

To propose that the Senedd:

2. Notes that there are an unknown number of animal rescue and rehoming centres in Wales.

3. Further notes the Welsh Government’s Animal Welfare Plan for Wales 2021-26.

4. Calls on the Welsh Government to make amendments to the Animal Welfare (Licensing of Activities Involving Animals) (Wales) Regulations 2021 to:

a) introduce regulations for rescue and rehoming centres and sanctuaries in Wales, including those operating online, by 2023;

b) require any individual rehoming more than three animals over a 12-month period to declare their activities and obtain a licence from their local authority;

c) ensure minimum training, staffing and environmental standards for all centres to meet to ensure the welfare of animals in their care.
