Domestic Animal Management Plan


Our Domestic Animal Management Plan (DAMP) 2022-25 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 and commented on the public exhibition of the draft plan.

The plan contains 38 actions across the areas of:

  • Staff development, process improvements
  • Nuisance management
  • Domestic animal overpopulation and euthanasia
  • Reporting
  • Performance management.
