New Domestic Animals Act Orders
The Domestic Animals Act 1994 (DAA) allows Councils, by resolution, to make orders under sections 25 and 26 of the Act.
The Council’s decision means that all cats must be securely confined to their owners property 24 hours a day and dogs can only be off leash in designated off leash public areas within the municipality.
Bendigo Animal Relief Centre
The Bendigo Animal Relief Centre (BARC), provides feed, shelter and medical treatment to animals who have become lost, seized or surrendered.
BARC has a variety of cats, dogs, and occasionally other animals, available for adoption.
