Impounded animals

Although Council makes every attempt to identify an animal's owner and reunite them there are situations where this is not possible or desirable, in which case the animal will be impounded. This generally arises when the animal is not wearing a Council registration tag or is not micro-chipped or the microchip details are not current.  Where possible Council tries to rehome all animals which is done via external rehoming agencies, animals are not rehomed directly from the pound.  If impounded it will appear on the below list after processing. Processing times may vary, so please check the list regularly.

  • Registered animals that are impounded will be kept for 5 working days.
  • Unregistered animals that are impounded will be kept for 3 working days.
