Domestic Animal Management Plan results significantly better

The implementation of Greater Shepparton City Council’s 2013-2017 Domestic Animal Management Plan (DAMP) has resulted in a significant decline in the number of dogs being euthanased, an increase in dogs and cats being rehoused and an increase in dogs being claimed by their owners.

The statistics show over a 10 year period that the number of dogs euthanased went down from just over 50 per cent in 2007-2008 to approximately 10 per cent last financial year.

The results of the DAMP are now available on our website.
