The Dog and Cat Management Board of South Australia has been established under the Dog and Cat Management Act 1995 (the Act) and is the only statutory authority of its kind in Australia.
The Act provides powers and functions for councils to manage day-to-day enforcement and administration of the legislative provisions for the management of dogs and cats in the community.
The Act also provides a framework to resolve disputes and breaches of the legislation or council by-laws through conciliation, thus reducing the need to resort to court proceedings.
