Contact the Council Office on 9298 8000 to report one of the following:
All other calls should be directed to Customer Service the next business day.
If a dog or cat is collected after-hours, including weekends and public holidays, it will be collected by Council’s after-hours animal collection contractor and taken to the pound, where it will be housed overnight. If the animal can be identified (collar, tags, microchip) it will be reunited with its owner as soon as possible.
If you've lost a dog or a cat, go to Council's Facebook page dedicated to reuniting owners with their pets at Lost Animals in Knox and add some details. If we find your pet, or locate the owner of one you've found, we'll let you know as soon as possible.
If you live in a council other than Knox and the owner cannot be located, please contact your local council to arrange collection of the dog. Knox Local Laws Officers can only collect animals in Knox, and have no jurisdiction to operate in other council areas.
