Companion Animal Management Plan

The Companion Animal Management Plan is designed as a practical guide and information source for pet owners and non-pet owners. It provides information to assist pet owners to understand their legal responsibilities as well as educational material to enhance the relationship between pets and owners, whilst minimising any negative impact on the urban environment.

The Plan outlines Council’s animal management role in the community along with strategies that will encourage responsible pet ownership to improve public safety and reduce the number of animal related complaints. It provides practical information for Palmerston residents and visitors in relation to effective animal management and can be used as a clear step by step guide to the complaint procedures for residents who are negatively impacted by pet ownership.
