Pets are an important part of many people’s lives. They provide companionship, can reduce stress, and can create a happier environment for people of all ages.
This section of the website provides information on:
- Responsible Pet Ownership
- Hire of Animal Traps
- Other animals and birds (including bees and chickens)
- How to Protect Your Pets in Emergencies
In addition to information, Council provides animal management services, handles complaints about dogs and cats, picks up stray dogs, and handles registrations. To find out more, call 8372 8888.
If you have an animal noise complaint, you are encouraged to resolve the matter yourself by speaking with the person responsible for the noise. They may not be aware of the noise impacting you. Discussing the matter may result in a suitable compromise for both parties.
If no compromise is reached and you wish to lodge a formal complaint with the City of Mitcham in relation to an animal or bird which is creating a noise or nuisance persistently to such a degree that it unreasonably interferes with your peace, comfort or convenience, please complete a barking dog log sheet or Section 254 Log Sheet.
For assistance in choosing a breed of cat or dog suitable for your lifestyle, visit Select-a-pet.
