Domestic Animal Management (DAM) Plan 2021-2025
At the November 2021 Council Meeting, the Domestic Animal Management (DAM) Plan 2021-2025 was endorsed.
The DAM Plan guides the way Council performs its duties to ensure safe and responsible pet ownership in our municipality. It also outlines how Council supports pet owners and non-pet owners when it comes to domestic and stray animals.
The Domestic Animals Act 1994 (the Act) requires all Victorian Councils to prepare a four-yearly DAM Plan. The legislation requirements that a DAM Plan outline the programs, services and policies to address the administration of the Act and the management of domestic animal issues.
