Rescued Animals (Dogs/Cats)

Rescue and Reuniting Fee:

Refer to http://www.gladstone.qld.gov.au/web/guest/fees-and-charges

If you believe your pet has been impounded, please contact Council on (07) 4970 0700 as soon as possible to discuss the procedure for release of your animal.

Proof of ownership is required before a receipt will be provided to collect your impounded animal. Identification from the owner may be requested if the animal is microchipped and/or registered with Council. Council procedures now require for animal owners to complete a statutory declaration including drivers licence details for those claiming ownership of an animal that is not registered, microchipped or identifiable as their pet in any way.

 

Impoundment Holding Periods

  • Unregistered Animals are held for a maximum period of three (3) days
  • Registered Animals are held for a maximum period of five (5) days

Animals that are not released within these timeframes may be disposed of by Council.

Rescue fees cover some of the costs associated with Council rescuing your animal and attempting to reunite you with your animal.
