Under the Domestic Animals Act 1994 (Vic), every Victorian local government must develop and implement a Domestic Animal Management Plan.

A Domestic Animal Management Plan outlines how a Council will manage dogs, cats and other domestic animals within its community and aims to promote responsible pet ownership, the welfare of animals, and the protection of the community and environment from cats and dogs.

We are currently reviewing the Hume City Council Domestic Animal Management Plan 2017-2021 and we’re asking the Hume community for your thoughts on:

  • responsible dog and dog owner behaviours
  • responsible cat and cat owner behaviours
  • the introduction of a cat curfew in Hume, and
  • Hume’s current domestic animal management local laws and programs.

This will help shape our priorities for the new Domestic Animal Management Plan.
