Where is the animal?
In the street
If the animal is wandering in the streets, please take note of the animal’s appearance, the time you saw it, and the location or any nearby landmarks to help us find the animal.
Please understand we may not be able to give you an update on whether the animal has been found, as many find their way home or are taken in by another concerned resident.
In my care
If you have taken in the animal, please be careful. Lost animals may be scared and unpredictable.
Our officers can come to your home or office to collect the animal. Usually we will respond within the day.
Alternatively you can take the animal to the Lost Dogs Home in North Melbourne, which works with Council to reunite animals with their owners or rehome them.
Call (03) 9688 0200 for urgent matters or make a request online.
Have you lost your cat or dog?
Any animals collected in the City of Maribyrnong are housed by the Lost Dogs Home in North Melbourne.
