Your lost cat or dog may have been found by one of these councils, even though your animal may live in another council area:

The lost and stray cats and dogs displayed on this website are being held on behalf of local councils. We will keep them for at least the required eight days while trying to find their owners. After this time, or earlier if they are reunited, they will be removed from this site.

The cats and dogs not claimed will spend time with our vets and behaviourists to assess their medical health and behavioural needs. Many unclaimed animals will be suitable for rehoming through our adoption program whilst other cats and dogs may require time in foster care.
