Impounded and lost pets

Can’t find your pet?

Losing your pet or having your pet impounded can be a stressful time. We do everything we can to reunite lost pets with their owners.

Call us on 02 6670 2400 so we can check our records to see if your pet is listed.

If a pet is found wandering unleashed in a public place, Council rangers are authorised to take the animal to the pound (under the Companion Animals Act 1998).

If our rangers pick up a dog or cat with a microchip or a tag with an address or phone number, we will first try to contact the owner and return the pet directly.

The best way to make sure your lost pet is returned to you is to microchip your pet and make sure your contact details are up-to-date. By law all dogs and cats must be microchipped by the age of 12 weeks.

Pets in the Pound

To find out about impounded animals, pay outstanding fees or arrange for your pet to be collected call us on 02 6670 2400 or view all cats and dogs currently impounded.

There is no public access to Council impounded animals at the temporary private boarding kennel, find out more about the Tweed Pound

Animals picked up by Council rangers are kept at the pound for at least:

  • 14 days for microchipped animals
  • 7 days for animals not microchipped

If we cannot locate the owner during this time, suitably assessed animals are transferred to the Friends of the Pound for rehoming. Animals are not available for sale at the pound.
