As part of Council's efforts to enhance and protect the public safety and amenity of the community, a number of rangers are employed to maintain animal control and welfare through the Shire.
Council's qualified Rangers are here to help. They can advise and intervene in cases involving:
- Stray animals
- Excess animal noise, eg barking dogs
- Threatening/attacking animals
For any issues relating to animal welfare, please contact the RSPCA on 9224 2222 or visit the RSPCA website for more information.
