Dogs and cats

All councils are required to have a Domestic Animal Management Plan under Section 68A of the Domestic Animals Act.  The City of Port Phillip has reviewed its Plan and the draft is out for your comment. The Plan is relevant to you whether you have a beloved pet or not. Dog poo, dog attacks (75 reported in 2011) and barking dogs (303 complaints in 2011) can affect anyone. There were 5873 dogs and 3001 cats registered in the City of Port Phillip in 2011/12. Follow this link to the Plan and to respond to these questions:  Do you think Port Phillip dog and cat owners embrace responsible animal ownership? What do you think it means to have effective control of your dog at an off leash park?
