Be a responsible cat owner
Owning a cat is a responsibility for the cat's lifetime.
Cats are New Zealand's most popular companion animal. As a cat owner, de-sexing and micro-chipping your cat will help keep them and other animals, including native wildlife, safe and well.
The Companion Cats Code of Welfare 2018 provides guidance and legal minimum standards for the care of companion cats.
To help ensure all cats in Tāmaki Makaurau / Auckland have a safe and happy home for their lifetime, we have co-designed a guide to responsible cat ownership, in partnership with these welfare agencies:
- Auckland Zoo
- New Zealand Companion Animal Council
- Stray Cats New Zealand.
