Pets & Animal Management

The District Council of Franklin Harbour strives to create an environment which encourages responsible pet ownership, where people and pets integrate safely within the community.

The Council has developed a Dog and Cat Management Plan which aims to establish guidelines to improve the management and control of dogs and cats within the community, while respecting the rights of all members of the community and protecting the environment. This plan also identifies the Dog Off-Leash Areas. To view Council's Dog and Cat Managment Plan please click here.
