Pet owners collecting their animals from the Pound will need to show some form of identification.
If the animal is collected within 24 hours, a release fee of $90 is payable. If the animal was picked up by Council out of normal business hours, a release fee of $155 is payable. An additional $15 is charged each day after that.
If the animal is not microchipped and registered with Council, the owner will have to pay a registration fee and organise to have their animal microchipped. Registration fees start from $32 for a cat and $49 for a dog. Eligible pensioners are entitled to a 50 per cent discount. Credit card/EFTPOS facilities are available.
Council has an agreement with the Blue Cross Animal Society to rehouse animals when the owner cannot be located within 8 days.
