Dog and Cat Management Plan 2022-202729 Apr. 2022
The Barossa Council is home to many companion dogs and cats and our priority is to ensure a healthy coexistence with animals and people within the local area.
As a part of our commitment to the Barossa, we have created a guide to help explain and simplify Council’s approach to dog and cat management.
The draft Dog and Cat Management Plan 2022-2027 provides the framework for The Barossa Council’s priorities and services delivered to our community over the next five years.
It identifies objectives and strategies to implement our mission of creating an environment that encourages responsible pet ownership, where people and pets integrate safety and harmoniously.
• To encourage responsible dog and cat ownership;
• To reduce public and environmental nuisance caused by dogs and cats;
• To promote the effective management of dogs and cats.
The Plan has a focus on community education to encourage voluntary compliance with Council regulations.
Community consultation to provide feedback on the draft Dog and Cat Management Plan is now complete. Thank you to everyone that provided feedback to help inform the adopted Dog and Cat Management Plan.
