Lost and found animals
Dogs and cats that are caught wandering around or lost are taken to the Bendigo Animal Relief Centre (BARC).
Animals that are picked up are held there for 8 days. If their owner comes forward within that 8-day period, they will be required to pay a release fee. Only dogs or cats that are registered can be released from the pound. Go to pet registration.
Any dog or cat that is impounded and is not claimed within the 8-day time period becomes the property of Council and may be sold or destroyed.
Pipers Lane, East Bendigo, adjacent to the Bendigo Aerodrome.
