Animals looking for a new home
Pets are wonderful animals that enhance our lives tremendously. Saving a companion animal’s life and making him/her a valued member of your family is satisfying and rewarding. Dogs and cats can be re-homed if they are not claimed from the pound within 8 days. All dogs and cats must pass a vet check and be de-sexed, microchipped and vaccinated before they can go to a new home. An adoption fee will apply depending on the gender and weight of the animal. Cats and dogs adopted from Council’s pound are registered for free for the first year.
