Dogs & Animal Welfare

Owning and caring for an animal can be a source of great enjoyment. It is also a big responsibility.  

The Council is responsible for dog control issues, including dog licensing, stray dogs, complaints about barking dogs and dog fouling.  The Council is also responsible for the welfare of certain animals and promotes responsible dog ownership.
