Lost Pets at VIC Council Pounds

LOCAL POUNDS & SHELTERS VIC

By law in VIC all impounded stray animals (microchipped and non microchipped) should be kept in a pound for at least eight (8) days.

When looking for a lost dog, cat or bird in Melbourne or any other region of VIC you need to start with the local Government Pounds and Animal Shelters. It is crucial that you check impounded pets in those facilities in person and report your lost animal to them even if it has not been previously registered with the Council. See below what steps you need to take in order to correctly report your lost pet to the Council and maximise your chances of a happy reunion.
