Animal Control

ImageLocal Laws restrict the number of animals that may be kept on each allotment in the NPA. The restrictions, applying to the ownerships of dogs, cats, horses and other livestock, are designed to ensure animal wellfare standards are met.

Each house is restricted to no more than two dogs per house (exceptions can be made for hunting dogs), and all cats and dogs must be registered. All land and enclosures must be deemed suitable living environments for animals. All animals must be registered with council.
