Tell us how we can better manage dogs and cats in your neighbourhood

Tell us how we can better manage dogs and cats in your neighbourhood

Wednesday, April 7, 2021

Council is preparing a new plan to help us better manage cats and dogs in the City of Whittlesea and we want to hear from you.

Over the next few months we want to talk with pet owners, people who are impacted by domestic pets, vets and shelters to help us better understand what the challenges and solutions might be.

We'll be at community pop-ups in coming weeks including at shopping centres and dog parks and want to hear your views.

You can also fill out the survey on our website.

The results will help us and our neighbouring councils to each create new Domestic Animal Management Plans to help us focus our efforts.

Read more about how you can have your say on our website.
