Dogs and cats that are caught wandering around or lost are taken to the Bendigo RSPCA Animal Shelter.  

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.
