Lost animals that have been reported to the City may have been placed at the Cockburn animal pound.
Please contact us to report your lost dog or cat. Our rangers will take a description of your lost animal and try and match it to the animals currently impounded. If your description matches an impounded animal you will need to make an appointment to collect your dog or cat.

Animal collection hours
Impounded animals are to be collected by appointment but are generally not released after 4.30pm. Rangers are not always available for releases in the office so turning up without appointment may mean you are turned away or will be required to wait until a Ranger is available.
Suitable photo identification is required to be produced on collection.
Putting animals asleep
We do not as a general practice euthanise unclaimed animals.
All unclaimed animals get rehomed by a registered and reputable animal rehoming service who can ensure:
- Vet assessessment of the animal including vaccination and sterilisation
- Animals can be matched to a new owner appropriately
- Property inspections and compatibility assessments.
It is rare for animals to be euthanised, but is done in instances where:
- The animal is overly aggressive and behaviour retraining is not an option
- Health and injuries determine it is the best option for the animal.
Please note, impounded animals incur a fee (see below).
All dogs and cats are required to be microchipped before being released. All fees must be paid on retrieval of your animal. EFTPOS and Credit Card only.
