Pets and animals can bring joy to daily life, but responsible pet ownership is important for the Stonnington community, as well as for the welfare of our animals.
Responsible pet ownership involves registering, microchipping and desexing your pet, as well as cleaning up after pets and walking dogs on leads.
Read the information sheet below to find out more useful information on caring for your pet and your responsibilities as a pet owner.
