Animal Management Facility

The City’s Ranger Services are responsible for the impounding of stray and unowned dogs, cats, and livestock. All dogs and cats are held for a 72 hour (3 day) period if the owner is not identifiable and for a 168 hour (seven day) period where the owner is readily identifiable. If an animal is not claimed within the time periods stated above it may be disposed of in accordance with the provisions of the Dog Act 1976 or Cat Act 2011.

Animal Management Facility (Pound):

  • Impounded animals are checked for registration and microchip identification
    • Cats are required to wear registration tags and be microchipped (with up-to-date details).
  • Claimed animals are returned to their owners after payment of fees.
  • The City does not coordinate any rehoming of animals, all unclaimed animals suitable for adoption are transferred to approved animal rescue and rehoming organisations.
  • Please contact animal rescue/rehoming organisations in your area to discuss animal adoption.

Reclaiming your animal:

  • Before your pet can be released from the facility it must be registered, microchipped, and sterilised (sterilisation applies to cats only, but sterilised dogs get a reduced rate for registration).
  • You will be required to provide proof that you are either its owner or acting on behalf of its owner.
  • Fees:
    • Seizure or impounding of a dog or cat: $100.
    • Maintenance and sustenance of dog/cat per day: $20.
    • For example, if your dog is impounded for four days the fee is $180.
    • Microchipping fee: $60.00 (via a voucher receipt for a local vet).

Opening hours and location:

  • Monday to Friday: 3.30 – 4.30pm.
  • Saturday, Sunday, and public holidays: 9 – 10am.
  • Closed: Good Friday, Christmas Day, and New Year’s Day.
