Report a Stray Dog

If you have found a stray dog within the City of Newcastle local government area that appears to be lost or without an owner, please report this by completing the below online form.

Our ranger team will contact you to coordinate a drop-off time, to ensure we are available at our Animal Facility, located at 75 Elizabeth Street, Tighes Hill. We are typically staffed from 8am to 11am and 2pm to 4pm daily.

Upon dog drop-off, we will provide immediate care and actively work to reunite them with owners or find suitable homes through rescue organisations.

Find useful tips for helping reunite lost animals with their owners on our Lost and Found webpage.
