Domestic Animal Management Plan
Our Domestic Animal Management Plan (DAMP) 2017-21 helps guide how people, dogs and cats in the Surf Coast Shire can live together in safety and harmony.
Community members contributed to the development of the plan via a survey, a workshop during public exhibition of the draft plan.
Important issues include:
- dog behaviour
- threats to wildlife and stock
- dog litter
- responsible pet ownership
- population growth of permanent domestic animals in the shire
- holiday home owners travelling with pets
- proximity of Geelong’s Armstrong Creek growth area
