Animal Control


All dogs within the Municipality are required to be registered.  

Please note: all dogs over the age of 4 months must be registered.

There is no fee to register dogs.

You may register your dog at the Altona office or online by clicking HERE.

All DOGS must be registered so that if they go missing we can contact the owner avoiding animal control fees.
