We encourage responsible pet ownership and care about animal welfare and protecting our community's environment.

If your pet's behaviour becomes a problem, you may receive a fine (infringement notice). Some examples of offences include:

  • your dog being off-leash in a leashed area
  • leaving your dog unsupervised 
  • not registering your pet 
  • not giving your registered pet a tag. 

Penalties vary depending on the nature of the offence.

Pay your animal fine within 28 days to avoid additional costs and the potential for legal proceedings.
