Impounded animals

The information on this page is intended to help reunite animals with their owners.

This page is regularly updated during working days. We apologise for any technical issues that may prevent updates.

Animal descriptions can vary, so it is best to go to our Animal Management Centre to look for your animal.

Identifiable cats and dogs are kept at the Animal Management Centre for up to seven days. We will make every effort to reunite animals with their owners during this time.

If you are picking up your animal, you will need to pay a release fee. Cats and dogs that are not registered will need to be registered before they are released.

You can go to the Animal Management Centre at 213 Queens Road, Kingston to look for or to collect your animal.

The following safety rules apply:

  • you must wear enclosed footwear in the kennel area (thongs are not acceptable)
  • only one person can go into the kennel area to identify their animal
  • children are not able to go into the kennel area for their own safety (please avoid bringing children)
  • please bring a lead for your dog or a suitable cage to transport cats and other animals.

Surrendered or impounded cats and dogs that are not claimed by their owners may be sold.

For more information about impounded animals, please call us on 07 3412 3412.

We will 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. We do not accept any responsibility for matters arising from the use of the information on this site.
