Lost pets

Wandering pets are routinely picked up by Council officers. If your pet is registered, microchipped or wearing a name tag with a contact phone number, we will contact you to arrange to drop your pet home.

If we can't identify the owner or we can't get in touch with you, we'll take your pet to Council's pound to keep them safe.

The animals below are currently at the pound. If you believe one of these animals is your pet, please contact Council immediately on 1300 69 22 47.

If your pet's not listed below

Many members of the public will take care of a pet they find wandering while looking for the owner. If your pet isn't listed below you can try:

  • Lost and found pet pages on Facebook
  • Ringing nearby vets
  • Contacting shelters (RSPCA, YAPS)

Please note, Council does not adopt pets from our pound. If you are looking for a new furry family member get in touch with one of the rehoming organisations that work in our region.
