Overview

Wellington City Council aspires to best practice in its delivery of Animal Control Services and seeks to achieve increased levels of responsible dog ownership for dog owners living in the jurisdiction.

The Council also acknowledges that there will be increased safety outcomes in relation to dogs by being a responsible leader within the Wellington region for delivering cost effective and customer focused Animal Control Services.

The Council wishes to procure a contract with a suitable supplier of Animal Control Services to the Council. The required service incorporates three major components:

1. Field Services;
2. Day to day impound management; and
3. Provision of an animal shelter (the existing shelter service is provided from an existing WCC property at Moa Point via a lease agreement). Note that WCC is open to any alternative shelter facility arrangements proposed by prospective tenderers.

The operation of the shelter and the monitoring and enforcement activities associated with the field services and impound management are governed by the requirements under the Dog Control Act 1996, the Impounding Act 1955, the Wellington City Council Dog Policy 2016 and the Animal Control Bylaw. It is a pre-condition of this tender that prospective tenderers must be able to demonstrate experience of delivering animal control services within the context of this legal framework.
