Being a pet owner is extremely rewarding, but it is also a big responsibility. As well as caring for a companion animal, owners are responsible for their pet’s behaviour and registration.
On the following pages you'll find information and useful links on owning domestic pets like cats and dogs. There's also a rundown of the legal requirements of registering your pets, and details on keeping chickens.
Responsible Pet Ownership Microchipping Program 2015
Council was successful in securing a $15,000 grant under the NSW Office of Local Government Responsible Pet Ownership Program. This helped us fund a subsidised microchipping program for eligible pensioners and low income earners.
The program also provided education sessions for the general community to increase awareness of responsible pet ownership issues, and involved the RSPCA and Housing NSW as program partners.
