Councils perform a range of functions relating to the management and responsible keeping of domestic pets.
Legislation helps us regulate matters such as:
Council is responsible for assisting our community with the responsible management of injured or deceased animals.
Council removes deceased animals from Council properties, roads, footpaths and reserves. A Council officer will endeavour to collect the animal within 3 hours of notification, 7 days a week. Following collection, and when it is possible to identify the animal (through collars, tags and/or microchips) Council will attempt to advise the owner of the animal's demise.
The collection and disposal of animals from private property is the responsibility of the property owner.
