Dog & Cat Laws

Laws relating to dogs in South Australia are governed by the Dog & Cat Management Board of SA , which is 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.
