Dog and Cat Breeding Consultations

The Ministry of Agriculture consulted stakeholders in the commercial dog and cat breeding industry to invite input on:

  • Required licensing and/or registration to operate as a breeder
  • Possible proactive monitoring and enforcement of commercial cat and dog breeders

The purpose of the consultations was to gather stakeholder input to potential legislation that will assist the BC SPCA to monitor and take action against irresponsible breeders of dogs and cats.

Thank you for your participation.  The stakeholder consultation period is now closed.

The summary of your feedback is now available.
