Lost and found animals

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. 

Any dog or cat that is impounded and is not claimed within the 8-day period becomes the property of Council and may be sold or euthanised in accordance with the relevant Code of Practice.
