Lost and found pets

If we find your cat or dog in a public place, we will try and contact you. If we can't reach you, we will take your pet to the Geelong Animal Welfare Society.

Found pets

If you have found an animal you can:

  • contact us on 03 5272 5272 between 8am–6pm Monday to Friday. Our Animal Management Officers always try to reunite pets with their owners
  • check social media to see if anyone has reported the pet missing
  • take the pet to your local vet, Geelong Animal Welfare Society and Geelong Animal Emergency.

Securing your pets at home

It is your responsibility to ensure your pet has a safe and secure home. We recommend you conduct frequent yard checks to ensure there are no areas where your pet can get out.

The Agriculture Victoria provides comprehensive information on keeping pets.
