Lost and Found Cats and Dogs

The best way to be reunited with a lost pet is for the owner to have it registered or microchipped. A name tag with a contact phone number is also recommended.

The City will contact the owner of a lost pet if they are able to identify them so it’s important to make sure registration and microchip details remain current.

If you have lost a cat or dog, check the Impounded Cats and Dogs page.

If your pet has not been impounded, contact the City and the details will be added to our lost animals register. Then, if your pet is found we will contact you to discuss its return.

If you find a cat or a dog please contact the City of Busselton so we can assist to reunite it with its owner.

Pets other than Cats and Dogs

The City of Busselton is not able to care for domesticated pets other than cats and dogs.

If you find a pet other than a cat or dog you may contact the City and we will add it to our found animals register. Alternatively, you may like to contact your local veterinary practice for assistance.
