There may also be some impacts to regular services provided by Council’s Animal Care team at this time, including delayed responses to non-urgent animal-related customer requests.

Where possible, Animal Care officers will attempt to maintain normal service delivery and will continue to collect contained animals during business hours.

Community members must adhere to public health directions including physical distancing and mask-wearing when in contact with Animal Care staff, to ensure the safety of our community. 

The Animal Management Centre will continue to open at normal hours for the provision of regular services.
