Local Government Animal Management Officers (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. 

The provision of community animal control and regulatory services is an important and often difficult task.

The Institute seeks to support those engaged in the business of animal management by promoting:

  • AMO training
  • Consistency of legislation
  • Recognition of the value of the AMO’s role to society
  • Support for AMOs from employers and community
  • Consultation in the creation and development of legislation and workplace processes
  • Resource and network availability and access
  • Professionally operated Council shelter facilities with best practice animal care
  • Strong healthy relationships with external stakeholders
