Submission of Show Schedules

Due to the anticipated lifting of restrictions and the short notice our  NSW affiliates may have for those wishing to run their 2020 show, the Management Committee have lifted its requirements that a Show Schedule be submitted 60 days prior to an affiliate's show date.  

Responsible Pet Ownership Forum

NSWCFA are a member of the NSW Government Responsible Pet Ownership Reference Group, which meets several times per year to discuss many issues across all pets. We will provide updates on issues where we can but there are restrictions around what can be provided relating to discussions within these meetings. 

There may be times when member input is required and there is an ongoing offer for any member to raise items that may be suitable to be put forward. Any items should be sent via email to the office with as much detail or examples as you can provide.
