The care of animals in South Africa is regulated by two Acts – namely the Animals Protection Act, 1962 (Act 71 of 1962) and the Performing Animals Protection Act, 1935 (Act 24 of 1935). ... The responsibility for the two Acts (Act 71 and 24) was transferred to the National Department of Agriculture (DoA) in 1997.
