Dog and Cat Management Plan

Thank you for your interest. This consultation has concluded and results are posted in the Library section of this consultation.

FriendsThe City of Burnside is reviewing the Dog and Cat Management Plan to encourage responsible pet ownership of both cats and dogs throughout the community.

The development of an Animal Management Plan for the management of dogs and cats within the Council area is a requirement under the Dog and Cat Management Act 1995.

The City of Burnside covers 30 square kilometres, with a residential population of approximately 42,000 and 19,000 dwellings. In the 2010/11 financial year there were 5,019 dogs registered in the City.

The City of Burnside is now reviewing its Dog and Cat Management Plan approved in 2007. The Dog and Cat Management Act 1995 requires every Council in South Australia to prepare a plan every five years.

    The Dog and Cat Management Plan (now known as the City of Burnside Animal Management Plan) engagement concluded 31 August 2012. After the community engagement, changes were made to the plan to reflect the community comments and Administration review. The Animal Management Plan was then approved by Council in October 2012 and subsequently endorsed by the Dog and Cat Management Board in December 2012.

    The Dog and Cat Management Act 1995 requires every Council in South Australia to prepare a plan every five years with the main objective to encourage responsible dog and cat ownership.

    The mission of the animal management service delivery, in the City of Burnside is, “to create an environment in the City of Burnside in which all members of the community are kept well informed about the benefits and responsibilities of dog and cat ownership and are committed to being responsible dog and cat owners.”

    The Council’s management of urban animal issues has an impact on the health, wellbeing and lives of the whole community and the welfare of animals in the City. The Animal Management Plan is therefore designed for everyone in the City of Burnside from dog and cat owners to those who have no pets, and sets the direction for the Council in animal management for the next five years.
