The Council’s animal shelter provides proper and sufficient food, water and adequate shelter for found dogs and stock during their stay.
The dog shelter is not a place for dogs – they belong at home with their families. To ensure your family dog is not impounded, it is essential your dog is:
- currently registered and micro-chipped with the Council to assist the dog’s swift return home.
- securely contained on your property to prevent the dog from wandering the streets.
- kept under effective control at all times when being exercised.
- immediately reported to animal management if lost.
