Impounded pets

If not claimed by the owner, unidentified animals (with no identifying microchip or tag) will be held for three days only, identified dogs will be held for five days only. Following these time periods, ownership reverts to Council and Council may deal with the animal in accordance with the Local Law. Please contact Council during business hours (8.45am to 4.45pm weekdays) if an animal belongs to you and you would like to arrange release.

See below for animals currently impounded - please note animals whose owners have been identified may not be listed below. Also visit our Adoption page if you would like to adopt a pet.
