Domestic Animal Management Plan

All Victorian Councils must have a Domestic Animal Management Plan. This is part of the Domestic Animals Act 1994.

The plan provides a framework for pet and animal management in Knox.

About the Plan

The Plan was created under the principals of the Domestic Animals Act 1994 and after a 12-month consultation process.

It is based on themes from the Act such as:

  • training of authorised officers
  • pet registration and identification
  • nuisance animals
  • dog attacks
  • dangerous, menacing and restricted dog breeds
  • pet overpopulation and high euthanasia
  • domestic animal businesses
  • other domestic animal matters.

See the 2017-2021 Domestic Animal Management Plan

Community feedback

The consultation period for community feedback is now closed. 

Adopting the plan

In January 2018, Knox City Council adopted the Plan.

It covers four years and is reviewed yearly.
