Animal Management

Council is committed to supporting responsible pet ownership throughout the community.

Whether you are a dog, cat or other animal owner, this section provides you with information about the City of Victor Harbor's management of pets.

Under Section 26A of the Dog and Cat Management Act 1995, Councils have a statutory obligation to develop a plan relating to the management of dogs and cats in their area. The plan must include provisions for dog exercise and prohibited areas and cover a five year period.  View the City of Victor Harbor’s Dog and Cat Management Plan.
