Community engagement puts focus on pet laws review

pet laws

There’s still time to have your say to help shape laws relating to the keeping of cats and dogs in Logan.

The City of Logan is home to more than 60,000 registered cats and dogs and Logan City Council has launched a review of some existing laws to ensure the city continues to be a leading council in animal management and community education.

Council has engaged with the community over the past month with almost 2000 residents completing survey forms to provide input to the review.

Residents from Yarrabilba, Cornubia, Jimboomba and Shailer Park have led the way in providing feedback so far.

Two more public engagement opportunities remain before the survey information will be reviewed.

This Friday 3 May, Logan residents can learn more about the review and complete a survey form at Windaroo Lakes Golf Club from noon to 2pm.

On Saturday 4 May, an Animal Care Community Day will be staged in the Logan Art Gallery car park on the corner of Wembley Road and Jacaranda Avenue at Logan Central from 10am to 2pm.

The Community Day is a family-friendly event (but no pets please) with activities including giveaways, entertainment, food and drink to purchase, a jumping castle, face painting, information on pet care and products and a Q&A booth.

Council is seeking views on local law provisions including:

  • The number of cats and dogs a resident can keep
  • Enclosure requirements for dogs on smaller properties
  • Length of dog leads when in public places
  • Effective control of cats when in public places
