Important information for pet owners in Moreland and Darebin

October 16, 2017

From Monday 16 October, stray pets found in the Moreland and Darebin council areas will no longer be taken to The Lost Dogs’ Home.

These pets will be taken to the new Epping Animal Welfare Facility (EAWF). This facility will oversee pound operations for Moreland City Council and City of Darebin, as well as Whittlesea Council.

On Monday 16 October, stray pets from Moreland and Darebin who are in the Home’s care will be transferred to the EAWF, which is operated by RSPCA Victoria.
