The program delivers a range of veterinary and animal welfare services regularly for Mornington Island residents, as well as working to educate residents on Local Laws as they relate to animal control and assisting them to ensure they abide by these conditions.
Council is committed to providing a level of vet services understanding there are key community needs respecting animal control and management. This includes exploring options for animal population control, educating community members, and developing skills and capacity within the community to support our program.
There is no permanent vet on the island (at present), however, Vet visits will occur every 3months. A qualified Animal Control Officer is based permanently on the Island and works closely with our Vet to support you with a wide range of services between vet visits. If it’s urgent, don’t put off seeing our team until the Vet arrives.
