Lost Animal Register

Council maintains a lost animal register to help owners find their pets and ensure their prompt return.

Lost Animals Not Listed on the Register

Council keeps an updated list of all found pets and livestock. Council officers will contact you if a pet matching the provided description is in the pound. Please notify Council if your pet or livestock has returned home and it will be removed from the list. Phone our Community Compliance Unit on 5624 2411 and /or feel free to post on the Council Facebook page (please note this will only be checked during business hours).

Found Pets

If you find a stray dog, Council officers can arrange its collection. Council officers will scan animals for a microchip and, if found, can contact the owners to collect their pets.

If you find a stray cat, please collect a cat cage from one the Council's Customer Service Centre's. Once the cat is caught, please return the cat and cage the Council offices.

Pet owners should place current registration tags on their pet’s collar to enable a better chance of returning your pet quickly.

If Council officers pick up your pet and are unable to contact you, your pet will be placed in the Council pound at a cost to the owner.
