Dogs can end up in your local council’s animal shelter or pound for a variety of reasons. These include being reported as roaming or not under some form of control. Great care is taken by Animal Control to ensure that all impounded dogs have good shelter and sufficient food and water whilst in their care.

If you discover that your dog is missing, please contact your local Animal Control Office. You can find their contact details here.

Where a current registration tag is identifiable or the dog is microchipped every attempt is made to contact the owner of an impounded dog. Any dog impounded for straying in public or private places and not claimed is required by law to be held in the dog pound for at least seven days.

As an owner, you are responsible for all fees associated with the impounding of your dog. These fees must be paid before the dog is released back into your care.
