Animal Complaints

Council takes all animal complaints seriously and once a complaint has been lodged, local law officers will investigate.

Council aims to help people resolve animal management issues so there is a safe environment for everyone and animals do not create health or safety problems.

If you have a dog complaint please call Council's customer service team on 1300 763 903.

When lodging a complaint, it helps to provide as much information as possible including the following details:

  • Nature of the complaint
  • Description of the dog and the address where the dog lives (if possible)
  • Your name, contact number and address

These details are held in confidence and allow a local law officer to investigate the complaint, take appropriate action and let you know the outcome.
