Domestic Animal Management Plan

The Domestic Animal Management Plan provides a formal framework to guide programs to improve animal management in the City of Greater Bendigo 2016-2021.  

City of Greater Bendigo has one of the highest levels of companion animal ownership in Victoria, with more than one third of households currently owning a cat or a dog. 

For every 100 people in the Bendigo community there are an average of approximately 18 dogs and 6 cats. With 5,400 requests for service per annum, 5 of every 100 people in the community are impacted by dogs and cats. This is the second largest cause of complaint to Council and accounts for approximately 17% of the total number of customer requests every year. 

The plan aims to achieve a balance between the needs of pet owners and the needs of others in the community and provides an outline of intended programs, services and strategies to achieve this.
