Pets, Pests & Animals

Animal management is an important role for the Council.

Animal management not only includes working with citizens who own pets to ensure they are adopting responsible pet ownership practices, but also involves keeping the community informed about potential health and safety risks posed to and by animals.

The Council's Urban Animal Management Plan aims to promote and encourage responsible pet ownership across our City. It has been developed in consultation with pet owners and the general community.  For more information, download: Council Urban Animal Management Plan
