Animals and Pets

Council provides useful information about keeping your animals, registration requirements and how we can help if you lose your pet.

During an emergency, our Local Laws team main priority will be responding to the emergency events. Any calls received for animals and pets will be prioritised and acted upon, however please be aware that there may be delays in dealing with your request. Your understanding during these times are greatly appreciated.

Don't forget to renew your dog and cat registrations by 10 April each year or you may receive a fine.

Please note: As of 1 July 2017 Council's pound will change. From 1 July 2017 all animals impounded by Council will be transported to Victorian Animal Aid. Any animals impounded up to and including 30 June 2017 will continue to be transported to RSPCA in East Burwood and remain there for their eight day holding period; even if this period extends beyond 1 July 2017.
