Lost and found

Animal shelters

We understand that searching for a lost pet can be extremely stressful. The most effective way to locate your lost pet is to contact your local animal shelter as soon as possible.

Below is a list of animal shelters in Victoria. Remember if your animal has wandered outside your local area, they might not be at your closest shelter, so you may need to expand your search.
