Payment

Payment and paperwork for the release of your animal must be completed at one of our service centres or libraries before you attend the Pound.  The total fee for release will be noted in the information on your animal’s ID below.

Please note that the fees paid for your release are only release fees for your animal, not an infringement.  After release, you should be aware that there may be infringements issued relating to breaches against the Domestic Animal Act, for example, failure to register and dog at large.

    If your animal is:
    • not registered, you must pay a registration fee with the release fee

    Microchipping and desexing will be arranged with Council’s contracted veterinarian after release fees have been paid in full and you will be notified when your animal is ready for collection.
