Lost Dogs and Cats

Report a Lost Pet

Rangers keep a record of any dogs and cats reported by their owners as being lost.

Rangers are able to match details from these reports with any dog or cat that may either be reported as found or impounded.

To ensure your lost dog or cat can be returned to you as soon as possible please ensure they are wearing a collar and tags as well as keeping their microchip details up to date.

To report your pet missing please contact the City on 9364 0666 or click on the link below:
