Byford Quarantine Facility
The Department of Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestry (DAFF) is reopening the Byford quarantine facility in Perth, Western Australia on 17 June 2013.
Byford was closed during a period of heightened and ongoing risk of bushfires in the surrounding area and concern for pets and all users of the facility.
Now that the bushfire risk has passed, the facility will recommence the intake of animals from Monday, 17 June 2013.
DAFF will be contacting people who have applied to import their pets through Byford shortly.
