Pet Ownership

Willoughby City Council allows residents to keep dogs, cats and poultry, but there are some legal requirements (see pdf format Companion Animal Management Plan).

Council provides off-leash areas and information on barking dogs.

Willoughby Council encourages responsible pet ownership in the community. Potential pet owners need to make sure they choose the right type of pet, understand the care requirements of that pet and be confident that they are able to meet all the needs for the lifetime of the pet.
