Taking your animal home

Before we release an unregistered animal it must be microchipped and you must purchase a desexing voucher if your animal is not desexed.  You will also need to pay any other applicable pound release fees.

Compulsory Desexing

If you are applying to release an unregistered dog or cat from the pound you must complete a Application for pound release(DOC, 398KB) form (DOC, 394KB).

You will also be given a Notice to Comply to produce proof from the veterinary service once your animal has been desexed or to state it is exempt. This proof must be produced within 28 days of the date of release.
