Dog Pound

The City is conducting alterations and additions to the existing dog pound facility at 199 Thelma Street, Como to upgrade it to a new Animal Care Facility.  The new facility will be capable of handling cats as a result of the recent introduction of the Cat Act.

Works have started on the 18 March 2014 with the estimated finish of the project being 1 October 2014.  Whilst the Dog Pound receives an upgrade, the City of South Perth and Town of Victoria Park Dog Pound has relocated to the 1 Lynwood Court, Osborne Park.  This pound will be open daily Monday to Sunday from 12pm-1pm except for Good Friday.

If your dog has been impounded you are required to pay an impound fee of $100 prior to the dog being released and a daily sustenance fee of $25 for the upkeep of the dog after the first day.

It is also a requirement that if your dog is not micro chipped, then it must be micro chipped prior to release.

To continue a high service to the City’s residents, if your dog is impounded by the City’s Rangers during the week, you can either attend the pound at 1 Lynwood Court, Osborne Park or you can attend the City’s Civic Centre; Cnr Sandgate Street and South Tce, South Perth and make payment of any impound fees.  Then your dog will be transported back to you after 1pm.  On weekends, residents will have to attend the pound in Osborne Park.

Dog Registration

Dog Registration is a legal requirement: if your dog is not registered you must also register the dog prior to the dog being released from the pound. If the dog is registered you will need to provide proof of this.
