Draft policy for injured companion animals not in Council's care/impound

A new draft Policy for injured companion animals not in council’s care/impound has been prepared by Dubbo Regional Council. The new draft Policy details the circumstances where Council will respond to incidents of injured, stray companion animals and provide veterinary treatment at Council’s cost to prevent unnecessary pain and suffering to the animal.

The draft Policy will be on public exhibition from Friday 22 December 2017 to Friday 9 February 2018 and can be downloaded from here. (PDF 130.6KB)  Hard copies can be requested from Council’s Customer Service Centres. Written submissions are invited during the public exhibition period. Alternatively, complete the online submission form below.

Please note that, in accordance with the Personal information Protection Act 1998, written submissions received by Council containing personal information may be made public when the matter goes before Council for consideration, as it may be included in Council’s Business Papers. Persons have the right to remain anonymous if they choose by refraining from submitting their personal information, however the submission may be given less weight in the overall consideration of the draft Policy.
