Domestic Animal Laws and By-Laws

AfricanisBathurst has a problem with dogs getting out of their yards.  Dog walkers, hikers, and horse riders are all complaining that it’s so bad that there are lots of no-go streets in our Village.  And the ARC research farm has lost 27 mostly pregnant goats to dogs between June and September 2023.  This level of unconcern for one’s neighbours is unacceptable, and the municipality and SAPS are finally gearing up to enforce the relevant laws and by-laws.

In case you don’t know:

It is an animal owner’s responsibility to see that their animals are suitably housed and confined to their own property.  Your animals’ behaviour, whether you planned it or not, is also your responsibility.  If an animal gets out, however that happens, you are liable if it causes a problem like, for example, a road accident, or hurts someone, or kills other animals.

You may keep 2 dogs and 2 cats without a permit.Africanis
More than 2 dogs require a permit. 
More than 2 cats, the same. 

And you need a permit for ALL other animals kept on properties within Ndlambe urban areas (including Bathurst).  You need a permit for caged rats and mice, hens, ducks, geese, rabbits, goats, sheep, cows and horses, even if it’s only one of each.  And you need letters of consent from all your immediate neighbours.

Permits are free of charge.  You fill in a form you can get from municipal Community Protection Services, or you can download it from here.  You get letters of consent from your neighbours, and you submit that whole lot to the municipality.  They come and see your property, and the permit is then generally issued.  It will normally only be turned down for roosters (noise) and pigs except pot-bellies that live in the house.  And for inadequate fences.

You can get the relevant application from the municipality, or you can download it here.
