Thank you for telling us your thoughts on cats and dogs

We’re renewing our Domestic Animal Management Plan which serves as a guide to manage domestic animal services in the Shire and we want to make sure it’s purr-fect!

Thank you for sharing your thoughts on cats and dogs in Nillumbik.

Under the Domestic Animal Act 1994, all councils must review and renew their Domestic Animal Management Plan (DAMP) every four years.

A DAMP outlines services, programs and policies relating to animal management, animal welfare, responsible pet ownership, relevant Local Laws and community education.

The plan relates to cats and dogs only, not other pets or animals.

Some of the areas covered include desexing and microchipping, effective control of dogs in public areas, dog on and off-leash areas, nuisance dogs and cats, barking dogs, cat confinement, and the collection and disposal animal excrement.

Whether you own a pet or not, responsible pet ownership affects everyone.
