Companion animals such as dogs and cats are often part of the family. The excitement your pets shows when you come home, the wagging tail at the sound of the leash being taken from its hook, the delight in a tennis ball, these are some of the rewards of owning a pet.
It’s important to understand your pet’s needs as well as your responsibilities to the broader community. Your pet relies on you to be a great owner, just as the rest of the community depends on you to be a responsible owner
Waverley Council recognises the importance of responsible pet ownership. We have a number of policies and resources to help educate animal owners about how to be a responsible pet owners.
