Found dogs

Found dogs are held at the Council's animal shelter and displayed below. Select an image for more information about that dog.

If no images are displayed then there are no dogs currently being held.

Every dog that arrives at the Council's animal shelter goes through the following process:

  • Scanned for a microchip implant
    • If a microchip implant is found and this number is registered, the Council will contact the owner.  
    • If a found dog cannot be identified by either a microchip implant or registration tag, the Council must impound the dog. 
  • The law requires all impounded dogs to be held for at least seven days while the Council attempts to contact the dog's owner, or the owner contacts the Council.
  • After the seventh day, if the owner has not claimed the dog, the Council assumes legal responsibility and ownership of the dog.
  • If an impounded dog is sick or injured, the Council will immediately seek veterinary advice.
  • Owners of claimed dogs are required to pay registration and impounding fees including food.
