Microchipping fee $60

*Your pet cannot be released if it is not microchipped. This can be undertaken by our rangers.

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.
