When reporting a lost dog include its registration number, name, sex, breed, colour, age, whether it has been micro-chipped or wearing a collar and any other identifiable features. Also include where your dog was last seen.

How do I Claim my Dog from Council

You must first verify your dog has been impounded by the Council. Once you have confirmed your dog has been impounded, please attend the Two Wells Council Office. In order for Council staff to release the dog you must provide suitable ID (e.g. drivers licence, proof of age).

In addition, if your dog is not registered as required by Section 33(1) of the Act, we will require registration to be paid prior to release.

  • Initial Impound fee - $55
  • Daily Pound Holding fee - $25
