About us

Local Government professionals working in animal management (AMOs) throughout Australia are engaged daily in community animal control and regulation work. Their job is to maximise community health, safety and amenity by minimising the negative social, environmental and financial impacts of inappropriately managed animals.

  • Support for Animal Management Officer's from employers and community
