The Dog and Cat Management Board

GoodCat is an initiative of the Dog and Cat Management Board (the Board) and was developed to help South Australian cat owners have happy lives with their cats and be responsible owners.

Established in 1995 under the Dog and Cat Management Act, the Board works closely with key partner organisations and the State Government to improve dog and cat management in South Australia.

The Board oversees the administration and enforcement of the Dog and Cat Management Act 1995 (the Act) and Dog and Cat Management Regulations 2017.

The objects of the Act are:

  • To encourage responsible dog and cat ownership;
  • To reduce public and environmental nuisance caused by dogs and cats;
  • To promote the effective management of dogs and cats (including through encouragement of the desexing of dogs and cats).
