Lost Pets

A dog with a sad look on its face.

Have you lost your pet or found a stray animal?

The Ballarat Animal Shelter is taking appointments between 10am and 3pm Monday to Friday. For  Ballarat’s pound services – the collection and release of stray pets –  call 5334 2075 to make arrangements to collect your pet. If you find a lost cat or dog call the City of Ballarat’s Customer Service team on 5320 5500 to request assistance from an Animal Ranger. We are pleased that so many animals have been adopted over the past few weeks and are now in their new homes. We are very thankful for your ongoing support of the shelter and our resident animals. Our team will continue to work with the animals in our care. Keep an eye out at the Ballarat Animal Shelter Facebook page for more information as it becomes available.

Call the Ballarat Animal Shelter on 5334 2075 or visit the Ballarat Animal Shelter on Facebook or at 5A Gillingham Place.

We can quickly reunite you with your pet if they are registered. It is much more difficult if they are not registered. Learn about registering your animal.

Opening hours: 

Monday to Friday: 9am until 4pm ( We are taking appointments only between 10am and 3pm so please call 5334 2075 to book an appointment.)

Saturday and Sunday  - Closed
