If safe to do so try to secure it.

Contact 8408 1111 and a Community Safety Officer will be sent to collect the dog from you and return it home as soon as possible.

The Dog’s owners, who may have already notified us that the dog is missing, are waiting to hear from us.

Please remember we try to return all dogs home as soon as possible to avoid any unnecessary stress for the dog or its family. 

We discourage holding the animal yourself.
