A NSW pet taskforce has made a local group happy.

The Corindi based Animal Protection Association of Australia welcomed findings in a discussion paper released this week by the Companion Animals' Taskforce.

Recommendations include mandatory breeding licences and a pet bond for renters.

"So much of our work focuses on unwanted pets as a result of indiscriminate breeding - either for profit or because of ignorance," APAA spokesperson Sally Wilson said.

"We also encounter many heart broken pet owners who are forced to give up their pet because they can't find pet friendly accommodation.

"Mandatory licencing for breeding will go a long way in wiping out backyard breeders and puppy farms. And a special pet bond will hopefully encourage more landlords to allow pets."

"I certainly hope the NSW Government will adopt into law all the recommendations of this taskforce which will ultimately reduce the tragedy of so many cats and dogs being euthanased every year in this state."

The report is a timely reminder for pet owners of the RSPCA's Million Paws Walk on May 20.

The annual event aims to raise awareness of the plight of abandoned pets, and encourage owners to raise funds for the work of the RSPCA in caring for abused and abandoned animals.
