Animal Management

We are responsible for ensuring animal management in accordance with Council's Local Laws and the Animal Management (Cats and Dogs) Act 2008 within the Burke Shire Region. The main things we look after are complaints about animal attacks on humans and animals, roaming animals, nuisance animals, registration of dogs and cats and the operation of the Pound. We operate a working hours service as well as an After Hours Emergency Service at an additional cost.

The things we don’t look after are native animals such as kangaroos, koalas and reptiles, or animal welfare concerns.

For Animal Cruelty / Animal Welfare Concerns or Wildlife Emergencies please contact the QLD RSPCA via their website or telephone the RSPCA Qld Call Centre on 1300 ANIMAL (1300 264 625) which is a 24 hour contact service.
