Council's animal impounding facility

Under section 62(1) of the Companion Animals Act 1998, animals seized under the authority of that Act, must cause the seized animal to be delivered as soon as possible to its owner, to a Council pound or to any approved premises.

Marrickville Council officers make all attempts to return companion animals seized within the Marrickville Local Government area to their owners, however, if an owner can not be contacted, the animal is transported to Sydney Dogs and Cats Home.

Before owners can collect their pet, they must pay release and maintenance fees. Contact the Sydney Dogs and Cats Home below for further details of these fees.

Sydney Dogs and Cats home is located at 77 Edward St, Carlton and can be contacted on Ph 95879611 or email: sdch@sydneydogsandcatshome.org or visit their website: http://www.sydneydogsandcatshome.org.

Opening hours:
Monday to Friday: 9.30am – 4.30pm
Saturday: 9.30am – 4pm
Sunday and public holidays: 9.30am – 2pm
