'For the Love of Paws' Campaign

Cats and dogs make great pets and owning one can be very rewarding. However, it also brings with it certain responsibilities.

As a community, you told us you want to see more support for Council initiatives to encourage responsible pet ownership, and we are listening.

Launching soon, our new responsible pet ownership education campaign; 'For the Love of Paws', aims to deliver vital messages about responsible animal ownership, aligning with the goals of our Domestic Animal Management Plan (DAMP) 2021-2025.

Over the coming months, you will notice some cute characters, created by local artist Chris Roy Taylor, popping up around the Macedon Ranges to remind cat and dog owners what it takes to be a pawsome pet owner.

Be sure to watch this space as we launch the campaign and deliver on some key topics.
