Animal Welfare

WA Contract Ranger Services provide weekly dog control services to Wandering. If you have any concerns or queries regarding dogs, please call the Shire Administration Office on (08) 9884 1056.

Dogs must be kept on a leash when in public except in designated dog exercise areas. As the owner, you can be given an on-the-spot fine of $100 for not having your dog on a leash or allowing it to roam.

If your dog or cat is impounded, fees will be payable to the Shire before release of the animal. Any dogs impounded for more than 72 hours may be put down or re-homed.


Dog and cat registration fees are as per our current fees and charges.

If you are wishing to claim as a pensioner or licence your dog or cat as sterilised then proof must be provided prior to renewal.
