Established in 1995 under The Dog and Cat Management Act 1995, the Dog and Cat Management Board (the Board) is the only statutory board of its kind in Australia and offers a unique perspective in reporting on the status of dog and cat management in South Australia.
The Board works closely with key partner organisations and State Government to improve dog and cat management in South Australia. Using its research and expertise the Board has ensured that South Australia's regulatory and legislative framework has been reviewed and amended to improve the management of dogs and cats in South Australia.
The Board's 2017-20 strategic objectives are:
Improved dog management through responsible dog ownership and community collaboration.
Improved cat management through responsible cat ownership and community collaboration.
Connecting Councils, community, professionals and agencies interested in and responsible for dog and cat management.
Leadership in dog and cat management and effective administration of the Dog and Cat Management Act 1995.
