After-hours holding pens

If you find a cat or dog that is not your own outside of our business hours, you can use our after-hours holding pens as a safe place to put the cat or dog.

The after-hours holding pens are located at the Animal Management Centre – 213 Queens Road, Kingston.

We check the pens every morning and afternoon on the weekend and every morning on weekdays.

We check all animals put in the pens for registration tags and microchips. We also add the animal’s photo to our Impounded animals webpage.

The after-hours holding pens are NOT for private surrender or suitable for sick / injured animals or wildlife. If we identify your animal and you have tried to surrender it using our after-hours holding pens, penalties apply.

If you find sick or injured animals or wildlife, please see Sick or injured wildlife for more information.
