Impounded Animals

If you have lost your pet, you must visit the Animal Management Centre at least once a day to check for your pet. Some impounded animals are listed below.

The content of this page is provided as a community service by Council. This page is normally updated during the course of each working day, however there may be occasions when this information is not updated (e.g. due to technical problems).

Animal description

An animal may be recorded with a description that differs from the owner's view of how the animal should be described. For example, the breed or colour descriptions may differ. If there is any uncertainty the most accurate way for a pet owner to determine whether an animal is being held by Council is for the owner to visit the Animal Management Centre.

Council shall not be liable for any claim, demand, action, loss or damage of any kind arising out of the incorrect description of any animal kept at the Animal Management Centre.

Please note: Cats and dogs are kept at the Animal Management Centre for a minimum period of three working days. Council officers will make every effort to find the owner of the cat or dog and arrange for the owner to collect it.

When you collect your pet from the Animal Management Centre you will be required to pay a release fee and additional fees to cover the time your pet has spent in the centre. You will also be required to register your dog if not already registered.

When attending the Animal Management Centre to collect an impounded animal, please be aware of the following:

  • Customers entering the kennel area must wear enclosed footwear. Thongs are not acceptable.
  • Only one person is permitted into the kennel area to identify their pet.
  • Children are not allowed in the kennel area for their own safety. Please avoid bringing children if possible.
  • Ensure you bring a lead for your dog or a suitable cage to transport cats and other pets.
