Animal Pound (Dogs and Cats)

Report a lost dog or cat

Lost animals that have been reported to the City may have been placed at the Cockburn animal pound. 

To report a lost dog or cat please contact us on 08 9411 3444.

Our rangers will take a description of the lost animal and try and match it to the animals currently impounded. 

Collecting your pet

Impounded animals must be collected by appointment but and 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.

To make an appointment please call 08 9411 3444.

At the time of your appointment, you can collect your animal from:

Operations Centre
52 Wellard Street
Bibra Lake WA 6163

Important notes:

  • All dogs and cats are required to be microchipped before being released.
  • Applicable fees must be paid on collection (see below).
  • Photo identification must be provided.

Fees

Payments can be made by EFTPOS or Credit Card only.
Type of Fee Fee ($)
Impounded dog fee $80
Maintenance and sustenance for an impounded dog $25/ day
Impounded cat fee $35
Maintenance and sustenance for an impounded cat $15/ day
Microchipping fee $60

What happens to unclaimed animals?

Where possible, 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.
Cats and dogs are not rehomed directly from the Pound.
