Pound and Dog attack Information

Councils are required to report to the Office of Local Government on certain activities associated with animal pounds and shelters they operate, and dog attacks that have occurred within their local area. The collection of this data has a variety of purposes in terms of managing cats and dogs, supporting responsible pet ownership and improving animal welfare standards. Publication of this data helps to meet community expectations for the open and transparent operation of pounds and shelters.
