If you have lost your pet and their picture is not below, please call the City on 9394 5000.

How we handle lost pets

Our aim is to always try and reunite pet and owner. When a cat or dog is impounded they are checked for a microchip and a current registration. If owner details are available they will be contacted. 

Reclaiming your pet

The following is required by law for the animals to be released:

  • Registration
