Release Fees for Animals in the Pound

Lost dog and cat peering over the counter.

Unregistered cats and dogs must be registered prior to release.  Discounted registration fees apply until 31 July each year.

If an impounded animal is 8 weeks of age or older, was born after 1 July 2010, and does not hold a current microchip – the owner is required to provide a receipt from their local vet for the pre-payment of a micro-chipping consultation prior to the release of the animal.

An Animal Holding Fee of $19.00 is charged per day for a cat or dog.  Please note different holding fees apply for other animals, see Council’s Fees and Charges.

* For REHOMING of animals please visit Rehoming an Animal or contact Customer Service on (07) 4783 9800 for the Terms and Conditions prior to release.
