Domestic Animal Management Plan

The purpose of the Domestic Animal Management Plan is to manage issues relating to the welfare of domestic animals, namely cats and dogs.

Developing and renewing this plan every four years is a requirement of Victorian councils under the Domestic Animals Act 1994.

2017-21 Plan

The Domestic Animal Management Plan 2017-2017 (pdf, 1.6MB) was endorsed in September 2017. It outlines the services and strategies we intend to pursue and includes activities which will:

  • encourage the registration of dogs and cats
  • promote and educate responsible pet ownership
  • minimise the potential for domestic animals to create a nuisance
  • minimise the risk of dog attacks on people and animals
  • manage dangerous, menacing and restricted breed dogs
  • monitor and address overpopulation and euthanasia rates
