Your Shelter. Your Future. Your Say.

This consultation, namely the survey, has concluded and staff are currently reviewing the response from the community to report it to Council in the near future.

Have your say about the delivery of animal welfare services in the Wingecarribee local government area.

Council has been running the Wingecarribee Animal Shelter since the departure of our previous contractor, The Lost Dogs Home, in November 2013. Since that time we’ve been considering options for the ongoing operation of our shelter.

Providing a safe haven for lost and stray cats or dogs, keeping them protected until their owner (or a new owner) can be found, is quite an involved activity. While providing high standards of animal welfare we also need to meet some key criteria including adhering to our minimal euthanasia policy and industry guidelines as well as remaining cost effective and efficient.

Three models have been developed for consideration and we’re now seeking feedback from the community about these:

  • Model 1 – Internal
  • Model 2 – Mixture of Internal and External
  • Model 3 – External

Your opinion is important to us. Please tell us how you would like to see the animal shelter operate.

Complete our online survey before Friday 20 March 2015.

Registration is required if you wish to complete the survey or ask a question. Your privacy is protected and it's quick and easy to register and contribute anonymously with a username of your choice.
