The council pound is located at Tanawha. Council also has a stock yard at Landsborough.

If your animal has been impounded, all fees must be paid before the animal is released. If your animal is registered, you can retrieve your dog or cat for free from council’s pound the first time it is impounded. Infringements may apply for animal related offences.

Dogs and cats are held for a minimum of three working days before relocation or euthanasia. Animals other than dogs and cats are held at the Landsborough stock yard.
