background
Pets guide
Hilltops Council recognises that many people keep and enjoy the companionship of various kinds of pets.

There are real benefits associated with pet ownership - socially, physically and mentally - however pet ownership can also be a common cause of complaint and conflict. Pet ownership should be considered a privilege and brings with it several responsibilities.

To ensure pets are not a nuisance to the community or other animals, owners are required to make sure they respect their obligations for pet ownership under the Companion Animals Act 1998.

We love your furry friends but please make sure they are registered and tagged so we can easily contact you if they get lost.  

For any queries relating to the keeping of pets in the Hilltops Council area, or for animal shelter inquiries, please contact Council on 02 6380 1200.
