After hours service

We have an after-hours animal management service which is used if:

  • a dog has attacked or is acting aggressively and needs to be restrained
  • livestock or horses are straying on public roads
  • stray dogs have been secured and are wearing a tag. 

Our after hours service can, where possible, reunite a stray dog with its owner, as long as the owner can tell us the number on the council tag. 

The after hours service operates outside of normal Council working hours, including weekends and public holidays.

You can access our after hours service on our main general enquiries number: (03) 6216 6800.
