Report a lost dog or cat

To report a lost dog or cat please contact us on 08 9411 3444.

Our Community Safety and Ranger Services team will take details and add the description of the lost pet to the City's Lost Animal Register.

Collecting your pet (process and fees)

Pet Collection Hours

Impounded animals can only be collected during pound collection hours. Owners still need to make an appointment to collect during those times to ensure a Ranger is available for the release.

Monday - Friday: 7:30am -10am and 3pm - 5pm
Saturday, Sunday and Public Holidays - By appointment only

Pet collection process

  1. Make an appointment to collect your pet by calling our rangers on 08 9411 3444

  2. To attend your appointment, visit the Operations Centre, 52 Wellard Street, Bibra Lake (remember to bring payment for fees and photo ID)

  3. Pay applicable fees (see below) prior to release of your pet.

Please note: You cannot attend the Operations Centre to collect your pet without an appointment

Pet collection fees

Payment of applicable fees is required prior to the release of your pet. Payment at the Operations Centre can only be made via EFTPOS or Credit Card and cash is not accepted. 
Type of Fee Fee ($)
Impound Fee $80
Maintenance and Sustenance Fee $25/ day
Microchipping fee $60
After Hours Impound Fee (7pm - 7am) $150

Please note: Your pet cannot be released if it is not microchipped and registered

Microchipping is currently conducted at a vet offsite. Owners need to allow additional time after the pound release appointment to follow the Ranger to the City's chosen vet clinic for implanation. 

Unclaimed animals

Cats and dogs are not rehomed directly from the animal pound.

Where possible, unclaimed animals are 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.
