Under the Domestic Animals Act 1994 every Council must prepare a Domestic Animal Management Plan (DAMP) at four yearly intervals.
On 21 November 2017 Brimbank City Council adopted the Domestic Animal Management Plan.
The plan will guide Council’s programs, services and strategies for the management of dogs and cats in Brimbank.
This plan seeks to balance the needs of pet owners, the broader community and the animals that share people’s lives.
The programs and activities outlined in the plan have been developed with the aim of encouraging people to enjoy their pets, within a framework of responsible ownership.
