0001 Animal Management Policy

Important message

Casuarina Library update

Casuarina Library will be temporarily closed to accommodate building works on the courtyard on Saturday 30 September, Sunday 1 October and Monday 2 October 2023. We will reopen on Tuesday 3 October 2023. The courtyard will be inaccessible for approximately 2-3 weeks. Remember that our Library return chutes are available 24/7. We appreciate your help!

The purpose of the policy is to provide a proactive, responsive, evolving approach to animal management that is consistent with Council’s Dog and Cat Management Strategy 2018-2022. This policy will provide direction in the application of Council's By-Laws relating to animal management, being Part 3 of the Darwin City Council By-laws (the Animal Management By-Laws).
This policy provides the framework to address:

  • Safety
  • Responsible Pet Ownership
  • Registration, Licencing and De-sexing
  • Nuisance Behaviours
  • Dog Attacks
  • Animals in Public Places
  • Pound Operations
