Impounded Animals

Lost or Impounded Dogs

Officers will attempt to contact owners where the dog is registered with the Town of Walkerville. However, if contact is not achieved then dogs picked up will be delivered to the Animal Welfare League Kennels at 1-19 Cormack Road, Wingfield.

Owners can be reunited with lost dogs by providing the appropriate identification and paying the required fee to the Town Of Walkerville prior to collection the dog from the Animal welfare league.

Animals impounded at the Animal Welfare League will be held for 72 hours awaiting reclamation from their owner. After this period they are assessed by the Animal Welfare League to determine their suitability for re-homing.

All enquiries regarding lost dogs in the first instance should be directed to the Town of Walkerville on 8342 7100.

For after-hours enquiries an answering service operates between 5pm and 9am Monday-Friday, on weekends and public holidays.

As dogs may also be picked up by officers from neighboring Councils, or a member of the public and taken to the Animal Welfare League, dog owners may also wish to contact the Animal Welfare League direct on 8348 1300 during the opening hours of 10am-4pm seven days a week.

Please notify Council of any changes to a dog previously or currently registered to you, eg. Change of address, dog sold, given away, deceased etc.

For further information please contact Council on 8342 7100 or
