Why are these organisations chosen?

These organisations produce an annual report and have a code of ethics that requires responsible pet ownership in compliance with the Domestic Animals Act 1994 and its related codes of practice. It is expected that the organisation will take disciplinary action against members who do not comply with the organisation's code.

This recognition also means that they are an organisation with high standards of responsible pet ownership to whom the community can look to when buying a pet or when seeking advice on care of a pet.
