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;
Dealing with nuisance cats; and
The maximum number of cats.
Councils may also choose to introduce a registration system for cats.
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.
