Animals and pets
Register your pet, find a lost animal or help a native animal.
Find your pet
We’ll contact you If your pet is microchipped, registered or wearing a collar and identification tag.
My pet is missing
Contact us as soon as possible. We’ll make every effort to reunite you and your pet if they’re picked up by one of our rangers.
I've found a dog/cat
Call us and we’ll collect the animal. If the animal has a tag – you can try to contact the owner.
Vets may accept a stray animal and then contact us. Vets are not obliged to accept an animal unless it is injured.
Animals in the pound
We’ll hold a dog for seven days if we can identify an owner. If we cant identify the owner we’ll hold it for at least 72 hours.
We’ll hold a dog for seven working days if we can identify an owner. If we cant identify the owner we’ll hold it for three working days.
If the animal is not claimed within these time periods it is then made available for adoption.
If you’ve found injured wildlife, call the Wildcare Helpline on (08) 9474 9055.
The wildlife volunteers can put you in touch with your nearest registered wildlife rehabilitator. They can also:
- offer advice on sick, injured or displaced native wildlife.
- refer callers to a wider network of experts for assistance.
They can also provide information on dealing with snakes and stranded whales or dolphins.
The Wildcare helpline cannot attend rescues, assist with non-native or domestic animals.
Contact the RSPCA for emergencies and acts of cruelty
If you would like to keep poultry, please consider the impact on surrounding residential and commercial premises, and the welfare of the birds themselves.
