A SURVEY to help decide local laws for pets is underway.
The survey is part of Kingston Council’s review of its domestic animal management plan.
The mayor Steve Staikos said “we’re asking pet owners and non-pet owners to fill out our survey and give us their views on a range of questions like ‘should it be compulsory to de-sex your pet’ and ‘what age animals should be required to be de-sexed’. These are often contentious issues within the community, so we want to make sure everyone has a chance to have their say.”
“Our parks, reserves and beaches are there for everyone to enjoy, including those community members with pets and those without, and our restrictions and rules around animal management ensures that can happen,” he said.
“We want to hear what the community thinks about Kingston’s current management of domestic dogs and cats, if there are issues we need to address or rules that may be out of date or no longer needed.”
The survey can be taken at yourkingstonyoursay.com.au/damp. Consultation closes 30 April.
