Animals and Pets

Rangers investigate issues such as:

  • Animal attacks

  • Barking dogs

  • Dogs and cats causing a nuisance

  • ​Dogs and cats in prohibited areas

  • Unattended dogs

  • Unreasonable aggression.

All dogs and cats are required to be microchipped prior to a change of ownership or before the animal is 12 weeks old. They also need to be registered with Council by six months of age. 

Registration of a companion animal must be completed once they have been microchipped. Regulatory action may be taken where an animal has not been correctly identified.

Learn more about registering your cat or dog.

For more information on keeping of other animals, please contact Council's Rangers.
