If your dog or pet is missing, you should start searching immediately:
- Check your house and garden and neighbouring properties
- Call the dog shelter on 09 438 7513 and the SPCA 09 438 9161
- Create neighbourhood fliers and posters and deliver to surrounding streets and shops
- Post a picture of the missing pet on social media and other online missing animal sites
If your dog is microchipped and registration details are up-to-date, the good news is there is a greater chance of being reunited quickly.
Council's Animal Management officers collect any wandering dogs reported to us and take them to the dog shelter.
