Lost Dogs

Dog owners must microchip and register their dogs so they can be quickly identified and returned to their owners.

We understand if your dog goes missing it can be distressing. To help find your dog you can do the following:

  • Report it missing to this number 07 838 6632 (available 24/7)
  • Check if it has been received at the Animal Education and Control Kennel 07 838 6664 (12.30pm - 4.30pm 7 days a week)

We’ll add the name and description of your dog to our Lost Dog Book to reunite you both more quickly.

You can also contact your neighbours, make flyers, and post messages on local community noticeboards.

Make sure your contact details are up to date

Found dogs

If you find a dog, please call so we can arrange a time to pick up the dog.

If you’d prefer to drop the dog off, our dog kennel is open 12:30pm – 4.30pm daily.

217 Ellis St, Frankton

We’ll contact the owner (if known) or add the dog to our Found Dogs Register below.

Unclaimed dogs

All impounded dogs are held for seven days, giving the owner time to come forward and claim them. If dogs are unclaimed, they can then be put up for adoption. We also have a lot of dogs brought in by their owner/s - who can’t keep them for various reasons - so we can find them a new forever home. All our dogs are behaviourally assessed to ensure they are of suitable temperament for rehoming before they are put up for adoption.


Animal Education and Control officers have the right to seize and impound any wandering dog. The dog owner must pay the impounding costs before a dog can be released.
