Lost & Found Dogs
We understand the special bond people share with their pets and try our best to reunite lost dogs and their owners.
When the Council finds a lost dog and is unable to locate or contact the owner, the dog is taken to the Animal Welfare League, who provide pound facilities for lost dogs.
If you have lost your dog(s)
- view the impounded dog listing below to check if your dog has been found by the Council
- if your dog is listed below, in the first instance please contact Animal Welfare League who look after found dogs for a minimum of 72 hours.
- if your dog is not listed in the lost dog listing below, please contact the Council on 08 8366 4555 to make a lost dog report. You can also contact the Animal Welfare League, RSPCA, local vets or post your dog on social media. Refer to our helpful links below for more information.
