Animal Management

Animal registrations
As a result of changes to the Dog & Cat Management Act in 2016/17, from July 1, 2018 dog owners will now register, renew and maintain their dogs through the Dog and Cat Online System (DACO).
The DACO system will be the official dog register and Council will no longer need to maintain its own register in house.
Council’s data has been migrated into the system and owners will receive a renewal and instructions on how to use the DACO system. The new system can be found by clicking here
For those owners that do not have access to online or feel comfortable using the system, Council has set up computers in the front of both the Port Lincoln and Cummins offices to assist those animal owners.
