Pets are an important part of the Mitchell community and bring significant health and wellbeing, and social benefits to pet owners.
Council's Facebook page, Animals of Mitchell Shire, allows the Local Laws Department the opportunity to celebrate animals and pets in the lives of our community on a daily basis. It is a fantastic way to communicate with the community and provide information as it comes in; to educate, advise or just to make the community laugh.
Like our page to see what's been impounded, post a photo and some details of your own lost or found pet or just share a story or a photo.
Desexing Vouchers are available
In certain circumstances Council can assist with the cost of desexing your cat or dog.
If you are a pension or health care card holder, your pet is vaccinated and registered with Council you can apply for a desexing voucher.
The voucher is valid for 1 month from date of issue and can be used at most of the Mitchell Shire Veterinary Clinics. The voucher is worth approximately one third of the cost of desexing to a maximum of $65.
