This consultation has now closed.

In May we asked for your feedback on a range of domestic animal-related topics and issues, including what aspects of animal management are working well and what could be improved.

We are currently reviewing this feedback which will help shape our Domestic Animal Management Plan (DAMP), which sets out how we manage dogs and cats in Port Phillip over the next four years.

Under the Domestic Animals Act 1994, every Victorian local government must prepare a plan outlining how it will manage dogs and cats within its municipal boundaries.

The Plan aims to promote responsible pet ownership and the welfare of cats and dogs in the community, whilst protecting the community and environment from nuisance cats and dogs. The Plan will help us balance the needs of pet owners with the needs of the whole community.

What's next?

We are currently reviewing consultation feedback which will help shape our Domestic Animal Management Plan (DAMP). Following this, the draft plan will be available for you to review and provide feedback on in August.
