Pets, livestock and local wildlife play a positive role in the community's wellbeing, and bring pleasure and companionship to many of our residents.
You have an obligation to care for the health and wellbeing of your pet, as well as a duty to ensure their activities don’t interfere with your neighbours or the environment.
If you own a cat or dog and live in NSW, you are legally required to microchip and register your pet. This helps us quickly return your animal to you, if it is lost, injured or stolen.
For everyone’s safety and wellbeing, we enforce a range of regulations for dog and cat owners. These include registration, rules about barking dogs, and restrictions on dangerous dogs
We respond to a range of animal and pet concerns including collection of stray animals and investigation of complaints about animals.
The region is alive with hundreds of species of wildlife, supporting over 350 varieties of birds, as well as many species of mammals, reptiles and fish.
