Cat By-laws

Template Cat By-law

A template Cat By-law has been developed by the Dog and Cat Management Board and the Local Government Association of South Australia.

The template By-law contains suggested clauses to deal with:

Identification through microchipping;
Mandatory de-sexing;
Dealing with nuisance cats; and
The maximum number of cats.

Councils may also choose to introduce a registration system for cats.

Guide to Preparing a Cat By-law

A Guide to Preparing a Cat By-law has also been produced to assist councils through the process of community consultation and deciding which of the clauses in the template By-law are appropriate for their local area.
