Animals that are placed at the pound or found straying are held between the Mackenzie Street Council Pound and Foxtail Park Kennels. Animals are kept for a minimum of 72 hours.
After 72 hours animals deemed unable to be rehomed are euthanized.
To purchase an animal from the Burdekin Shire Council Pound see the Rehoming of Cats and Dogs in the Pound page for terms and conditions
Some animals that are eligible for re-homing are given to Burdekin Pet Rescue. Burdekin Pet Rescue then undertake appropriate suitability tests before having them vet checked, wormed, microchipped and desexed ready for adoption.
All residents looking to adopt a pet are advised to contact Burdekin Pet Rescue.
