Found animal

If you have found an animal that you can contain to your property, please call Council's after hours emergency service (24 hour service) on 9490 4222 to arrange its pickup.


If your dog is wearing its Council registration tag or is micro chipped, and is found by Council, we will make every effort to return it to your property while someone is at home, to ensure pet security. If nobody’s home, we’ll leave a message for you (if possible), letting you know that your pet has been taken to the pound. Any dog not wearing a registration tag or without a microchip, will be taken to the pound immediately. To view information about Banyule's pet pounds please follow the link under Related information.
