Lost and found animals

Losing an animal can be distressing and cause worry. If your pet is microchipped and registered, and your current details are up to date with Council, you can be easily reunited.

The main collection point for lost animals is Shoalhaven Animal Shelter. You can check the Shoalhaven Animal Shelter Facebook page to see if your animal is at the shelter.

There are some things you can do and should know about if you have lost a pet.

Surrendering an animal
