Domestic Animal Services and ACT Government would like to thank our valued DAS volunteers for their remarkable efforts in assisting DAS staff with the attention and welfare of dogs in our care in 2019. Domestic Animal Services sets out to protect Canberrans against dangerous and aggressive dog incidents in our community. Our Volunteer Program will continue in 2020 and we will look to improve services and build a core network of volunteers to assist in dog exercise and dog enrichment programs. We cannot continue to do this without the vital support and commitment of all our volunteers.
