Responsible Pet Ownership

Surf Coast Shire  is seeking your input to help develop the Domestic Animal Management Plan (DAMP) 2017-21. The DAMP will guide behaviour and actions in the management of cats and dogs.

Whether you’re an animal owner or not, we want you to let us know your views on what is responsible pet ownership. Have you come across any challenges with cats and dogs in your community? What are some of the issues you face?

Did you know you can have your say by completing  a survey, which will collect information on issues such as microchipping, registrations, lost animals, barking dogs and animal complaints. The survey closes on Monday 18 September at 9am and  can be completed by going to the link

A community workshop will be held Thursday 21 September at Council office, Torquay from 5.30pm. Interested in attending? you need to register on the Surf coast Shire website.
