Animal Education

We are committed to striking the balance between pet ownership and the well-being of our community. We employ a full-time Animal Education Officer who attends to the Pet Care Help Line.

Here to Help

The Animal Education officer delivers a range of education services that can be accessed by all members of the community and can also pay home visits to help pet owners address specific issues. Education services provided are designed to support you as a pet owner and help you better understand the responsibilities of pet ownership, now and into the future.
