Peninsula dog owners have been urged to ensure their backyards are secure as more people return to work after the easing of COVID-19 restrictions. Mornington Peninsula Shire Council’s environment protection manager, John Rankine, called on owners to check their yards were secured with a closed gate and escape-proof fencing before returning to work.

Mr Rankine said the council’s pound staff had noticed an increase in the number of adoption inquiries since the introduction of COVID restrictions. “There has, however, been a decrease in the number of animals impounded, which can be attributed to the suspension of the shire’s cat-trapping program. As a result, the number of adoptions have also significantly decreased.

He added: “During the summer months ahead it’s important to make sure that pets are looked after when extreme heat hits by providing plenty of water, access to cool, shady areas and never leaving pets unattended in a car. Ensure that pets are registered so that the shire can contact the owner to reunite them with a lost pet as soon as possible.”

Dogs must be walked on a leash unless in a designated leash-free area, and an adult must be in charge of the animal – young children cannot safely control a dog. Dogs should always be under effective control regardless of whether it’s in a leash-free area. Owners should know where their dog is at all times and should be able to call it back and ensure it obeys their commands. Cats must always be kept safe and secure on the owner’s property.
