Under section 32(1) of the Companion Animals Act 1998, "Any person may lawfully seize a cat if that action is reasonable and necessary for the protection of any person or animal (other than vermin) from injury or death".
If you have found a cat please contact Council's Customer Service Centre on 9335 2222.
Unlike dogs, cats are allowed to roam the streets or private property.
Marrickville Council may only accept cats that have been lawfully seized in accordance with the Companion Animals Act 1998. Council may request you provide a formal statement to support your reason for the cat's seizure.
