Stray Dogs

Stray Dogs/Dogs at Large

A dog comes onto your property or is seen wandering:

  • If the dog has an id tag - if a phone number is displayed, give the number a call
  • If the tag is a Circular Head Council tag call the Council on 6452 4800 and provide the tag number to the officer on duty. This will assist in contacting the owner
  • If no id - consider posting on social media to see if anyone knows the dog or the owner is looking for their lost dog

NOTE: Dogs will be collected during business hours only. Afterhours, dogs are only collected in emergency situations

Important information

  • Do not put yourself in any danger of being bitten or stopping traffic to contain a dog.
  • If a dog is wandering, take an image and post it on social media
  • If a dog attacks Afterhours and causes serious injury to a person or other animals, contact police immediately on 131 444 then Council on 6452 4800.
