In response to this community-wide issue, we are broadening our patrols to help combat roaming dogs. Our compliance officers will patrol throughout the day and at time throughout the night.
Unfortunately, funding limits our ability to provide longer patrols as well as weekend patrols for our community, and this is the reason why the domestic dog levy was introduced last year to help fund some of these additional patrols residents are requesting.
WHAT TO DO IF YOU ARE BEING MENACED AND HOW TO REPORT WANDERING DOGS
- All residents are asked to report these issues preferably by the free app called Snap Send Solve. This way, a picture of the offending dog forms hard evidence on which we can fine neglectful owners.
- The second best way is to phone Council on (07) 4620 8888 if the incident is during business hours.
- If a dog is menacing you out of hours, phone our On-Call number 0407 253 858.
We take this opportunity to thank the 90% of community members who are responsible pet owners.
