Adopt a dog

Our "pound pooch" dogs are looking for homes! 

Adopting a dog from the pound is a great way to help an animal in need. Our pound adoptions also have an excellent success-rate because each animal is fully assessed and given some training before it is advertised, to make sure it is suitable for residential homes.

Your checklist:

  • Do you want to adopt?
  • Are you in a position to give the dog the care and attention it needs?
  • Do you have space for the dog to exercise?

How to enquire

Please contact the Animal Management Centre directly to discuss adoptions.

Hours: 8:30am and 5:00pm, Monday to Friday
