Owning a dog can provide great companionship and pleasure. However, deciding to become a dog owner also means you take on responsibilities, not only toward the dog to feed, care for and exercise it, but to the community in general in the way the dog is controlled and behaves.
Council has a legal responsibility to administer and enforce the provisions of the Dog and Cat Management Act 1995 as it relates to dogs and has a full time officer appointed for that purpose.
Dog Registrations expire at 30 June each year and must be renewed by 31 August. It is required by law that all dogs are to be registered within 14 days of acquiring them. All dogs of or over 3 months of age must be registered. Any dog travelling through the Council region must be registered at the owner's permanent address.

Council does not have a legal responsibility to administer and enforce the legislation in relation to cats.
At present cats do not have to be registered and there is no official limit on the number of cats which can be kept.
Council strongly encourages responsible cat ownership.
You can hire out cat traps for feral cats from each of the offices, Clare, Saddleworth & Riverton but we do not dispose of them.
The Development Act and Local Government Act regulate the keeping of animals on domestic premises. Contact Council to discuss this matter.
