Lost pets - what happens if my dog is found and picked up?

City officers make every attempt to contact the owner when a dog is found. It is important that your dog or cat is wearing its registration tag and that the microchip owner details are up to date.

You can supply more than one contact person to be recorded on your pets registration.

If the dog or cat  is not wearing a registration tag or the microchip owner details are not up to date we cannot contact the owner, the dog or cat is then taken to the Geelong Animal Welfare Society.
