Domestic Animal Management Plan 2022-2026

Submissions for the draft Domestic Animal Management Plan 2022-2026 are now closed.

WHAT HAS HAPPENED

The draft Domestic Animal Management Plan (DAMP) was developed after a community and stakeholder engagement phase where Council received more than 2000 community survey responses.

We them welcomed feedback on the draft plan, which was exhibited from October to early November 2021. The next stage of this project is for Council to receive and consider the written submissions at the Council meeting on 23 November 2021.

BACKGROUND

We are developing our next Domestic Animal Management Plan to ensure the cats and dogs of Glen Eira are looked after.

Every Victorian council must complete a Domestic Animal Management Plan every four years. A Domestic Animal Management Plan outlines Council’s approach to the management of domestic animals which includes:

  • Encouraging the registration of dogs and cats
  • Promoting responsible pet ownership
  • Minimising the potential for domestic animals to create a nuisance
  • Minimising the risk of dog attacks on people and animals
  • Managing dangerous, menacing and restricted breed dogs
  • Monitoring and tackling overpopulation and euthanasia rates
