Pet Adoption

As a “no kill” pound we try to find as many homes for animals as possible by either adopting them out or sending the animals to rescue groups who we have agreements with. 
The cost of adopting a dog from the Pound is $100, and a cat is $50.00. This subsidised cost is Council's way of giving impounded animals a second chance at finding a new loving home. The animal is desexed, vaccinated and microchipped for this cost. The only other cost for the new owner is the applicable registration fee where the animal is to live. Council is extremely proud to support rehoming of cats and dogs from the pound. 

Choosing the right pet for you is fun, but takes time, planning and lots of research. You need to consider very carefully both your needs and the needs of any animal that comes into your life.

For information on what you can expect from breeds of dogs please visit the Purina website.

Please remember that pets are a life-long commitment and given the chance, they will love you for life.
