Your pets should be kept on your premises at all times. If your pet goes missing, it is possible that we have picked it up and taken it to the pound. 

Please contact the Rural City of Wangaratta on 03 5722 0888 if you believe your pet may have been picked up by one of our rangers.

Animals that have been picked up by council rangers and their owners have not been located within 24 hours will be taken to the Albury Animal Care Centre at 695 Mudge Street, Hamilton Valley (Albury).  Phone 02 6043 8530.
