Our adoption fee includes up-to-date vaccinations, desexing and microchipping. In some cases medical conditions may have been treated and all ongoing medical issues will be discussed at the time of adoption. All veterinary care beyond the date of the adoption is the responsibility of the new owner (with the exception of desexing if the animal was too young to be desexed at the time of adoption).
In addtion to the profiles below, more information on some of the animals available for adoption
can be found on our YouTube channel.
Surrenders require an appointment so please make a booking by calling 9484 2166.
Animals within the Ku-ring-gai Council may be surrendered to us if ownership is no longer possible. Please note a fee applies and proof of ownership must be provided. Before surrendering we suggest:
Upon surrendering animals are immediately the property of Ku-ring-gai Animal Pound and will be assessed for rehoming by trained veterinary staff. In some instances rehoming is not possible and euthanasia is the only viable option (e.g. extreme aggression, unmanageable medical conditions or whereby the animal is suffering beyond control). Owners must be aware of this possibility prior to surrender.
Please call the pound on 9484 2166 and confirm your pet is at the pound and when you will be coming to collect it. Please ensure you bring your driver’s license or some other form of photo I.D. as proof of identity. You may also need to bring other relevant documents e.g. desexing certificate.
Please note collections are only available during vet opening hours.
