Lost, Found and Adoptions

Below are all the animals currently in our pound. Some are waiting to be claimed by their owners while others are available for adoption due to no owners coming forward. Please consider adopting a pet before purchasing from a backyard breeder.

Call our Ranger Services team on 1300 242 686 with any enquiries.

  • How do I report a lost or wandering animal?

    All wandering or lost animals should be reported directly to council so our rangers can respond quickly and with all of the relevant information.

    To report a lost or wandering dog fill in the online form or call council on 1300 242 686 (available after hours for emergencies only).

  • What happens if my animal is picked up by the rangers?

    If your animal is collected by our rangers it will be taken to the local pound and checked for a microchip and/or registration to determine the appropriate course of action.

    Fine amounts vary depending on the seriousness and nature of the offence.

    A release fee for impounded animals of $50.00 per day or part thereof is also charged.

    If an impounded dog is not microchipped or registered, they must be before they are released.
