Domestic animals under the microscope

Publish Date: 07/09/2017

We are asking all community members to provide feedback on the draft Domestic Animal Management Plan 2018-2021 (DAM Plan).

The DAM Plan describes how we, as a council, will respond to the approximately 1,500 calls we receive each year and deliver animal control services in accordance with the Domestic Animals Act 1994 during the next four years.

Some exciting incentives in the draft DAM Plan include a ‘free first ride home’ for any stray registered animals plus if you register your animal for the first time in January 2018 will receive four months registration free – you will get 16 months registration for the price of 12 months.

Mayor Gary Cleveland is encouraging key stakeholders, organisations and members of the public to read the draft DAM Plan and take the opportunity to share their views.

"Feedback will help guide council’s animal control services for the next four years and ensure Moira Shire remains an animal-friendly, sustainable and healthy place to live and visit," Mayor Cleveland said.

"We also aim to reduce the number of dog attacks and dog rushes within the community by implementing various prevention activities including educating the community on dog attack prevention, responsible pet ownership, acceptable dog behaviour and the serious consequences of a dog attack.

"All submissions in relation to the draft DAM Plan will be considered."

A copy of the draft DAM Plan can be viewed at our service centres in Cobram and Yarrawonga as well as our website www.moira.vic.gov.au.

Feedback must be received at council by Wednesday 27 September, either be email, delivered in person or sent via the mail.

If you have any queries or wish to discuss this matter further, do not hesitate to contact us on (03) 5871 9222.
