Animal Management Services

We recognise the important role pets play in the lives of their owners, the families they live with and, through positive social interactions, the local community. Our services and policies balance the needs of pets and their owners with the needs of the whole community.

Animal management services

Our rangers are responsible for animal management services. These cover pets (domestic dogs and cats), other animals (livestock, horses etc.) and native animals.

One of the rangers’ most important jobs is to make sure that, as a responsible pet owner, you have your pet microchipped and registered.

The NSW Office of Local Government is responsible for pet registrations.

Pet ownership policies

Our Companion Animal Management Plan explains how we keep pets and people safe, and outlines your responsibilities as a pet owner.

We will be reviewing the plan over the next 2 years with guidance from the Companion Animal Advisory Panel.
