A pet can provide wonderful companionship, but being an animal owner also brings responsibilities.
Orange City Council works to ensure pet owners act responsibly, so that humans and their animal companions can share the city's great lifestyle.
Cats and dogs are popular pets and it is important that all owners know their responsibilities when it comes to registration, and penalties for breaching animal regulations.

The NSW Government site provides information on what to do if you are attacked by a dog as well as what to do if your dog bites someone and a council ranger gives you Notice of an Intention to declare your dog a dangerous dog.
