Help shape how we look after dogs and cats in Maroondah.

Council is developing a Domestic Animal Management Plan 2021-2025 (Plan) which is a four-year plan that provides a strategic approach to the delivery of animal management services across the City of Maroondah.

The Plan was developed in consultation with Council’s Animal Management Team, and informed by research, benchmarking and consultation activities. The plan aims to assist in educating the community on responsible pet ownership issues, promoting the benefits of pet ownership, ensuring appropriate levels of community compliance are in place and raising the profile and importance of effective domestic animal management. The plan considers:

  • The importance of pets to Maroondah residents
  • Concerns about animal-related matters
  • Ideas and resources to assist residents to manage and care for their pets
  • Dogs in parks and reserves
  • How well information provided by Council about pets and animal management addresses the needs of residents

The Domestic Animals Act 1994 Section 68A requires Councils to periodically evaluate any program, service strategy or review outlined in the DAMP. The Act also requires annual reviews and an evaluation of its implementation, published in Council’s annual report.
