Collecting your pet (process and fees)

Pet Collection Hours

Impounded animals can only be collected during the pound collection hours. Owners still need to make an appointment to collect during those times to set a specific time, to ensure a Ranger is available for the release and to be provided other relevant information. 

Monday - Friday: 9-10am and 4-5pm
Saturday, Sunday and Public Holidays - By appointment only


Pet collection process

  1. Make an appointment to collect your pet by calling our rangers on 9411 3444

  2. To attend your appointment, visit the Operations Centre, 52 Wellard Street, Bibra Lake (remember to bring payment for fees and photo ID)

  3. Pay applicable fees (see below) prior to release of your pet.

Please note: You cannot attend the Operations Centre to collect your pet without an appointment
 

Pet collection fees

Payment of applicable fees is required prior to the release of your pet. Payment at the Operations Centre can only be made via EFTPOS or Credit Card and cash is not accepted. 
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

Please note: Your pet cannot be released if it is not microchipped and registered

Microchipping is currently conducted at a vet offsite. Owners need to allow additional time after the pickup appointment to follow the Ranger to the Cities designated vet clinic for implanation. 

Unclaimed animals

Cats and dogs are not rehomed directly from the animal pound.

Where possible, all unclaimed animals get rehomed by a registered and reputable animal rehoming service who can ensure:

  • The animal will be assessed by a vet, vaccinated and sterilised

  • The animal can be matched to a new owner appropriately

  • The property can be inspected and assessed.

It is rare for animals to be euthanised, unless:

  • It is overly aggressive and behaviour retraining is not an option

  • Health and injuries determine it is the best option for the animal.
