*Please note the list of impounded animals is only updated during the pound's opening hours, and details of animals are usually removed after seven days.

All impounded animals are checked for registration and microchip identification on arrival. Cat identification must be via a collar and a microchip. The collar must have the cat’s name and your current address and telephone number. Microchips must contain your name, current address and telephone number. 

The pound maintains identifiable animals for a maximum period of seven days. If any details are obtained, correspondence is sent to the last known owner/address. After this, the animal may be re-homed, sold or humanely put down.

Please ensure you provide photographic identification when wishing to collect your animal.

If your animal is missing and hasn’t been impounded, the City of Swan also has a duty of care to remove deceased animals within its road reserves and other City lands, if any registration information is found on the deceased animal upon removal, the City’s animal registration records are updated, please contact 9267 9267 for further information. 



All fees must be paid in full before the animal is released. If your cat or dog is unregistered, it must also be registered before it can be released from the pound.
