As our community grows, so does the number of our pets who also share our homes, walkways, parks and beaches.
The Surf Coast Shire Council Domestic Animal Management Plan 2022-2026 focuses on cats and dogs specifically, and outlines the key issues, objectives and priorities for how these will be managed.
Have your say
There are three pawsome ways you can get involved or provide input into this plan:
1. Complete our online survey, Pawsome Pets, Pawsome People by 15 August.
2. Enter our photo competition by posting your favourite cat and dog pics on Facebook and Instagram. Use the hashtag #pawsomeSCS, for your chance to win one of three $100 Pet Stock Vouchers.
Competition closes 15 August; posts must be public so we can see them; see T&Cs below.
3. Make a submission on the draft Domestic Animal Management Plan 2022-2026 once is has been developed. It will be open for comment for three weeks in October.
Every four years Surf Coast Shire Council prepares a domestic animal management plan in consultation with our community.
Our aim is to promote and encourage responsible pet ownership, while ensuring that we all (four-legged friends included) have an enjoyable place to live and play.
