The RSPCA has advice for help you find your pet as quickly as possible. Some tips include:
It is always recommended that you contact your local shelter and search the area for your pet. As a pet owner, it is your legal obligation to identify your lost pet at the pound facility.
If our officers pick up your pet and it's wearing its registration tag, is currently registered and has no history over the past 12 months then, under our Return to Home policy, our officer has the discretion to contact you and arrange the return of your pet.
Please make sure your contact details are up to date by contacting us. If you haven't heard from Council's animal management service, please contact The Lost Dogs Home.
If you don't think your pet was wearing its registration tag, the Lost Dogs Home keeps a list of dogs and cats that have been found.
Your animal can be picked up by another organisation or even a neighbouring Council. See the Places to contact tab to find out where you can call for information.
If you find a lost pet, please note down the number on the registration tag if it is safe to do so. You can then contact us and we will attempt to locate the owner for you.
There are a number of reasons why Council is the best first point of call for lost pets, including:
If you have found a deceased animal on a road or nature strip, please contact a local vet or call us on 1300 322 322.
