Lost or missing animals

The Central Goldfields Shire Pound is Council-owned and operated and cares for hundreds of lost and surrendered animals every year, including cats, dogs and various livestock including sheep, pigs, horses, poultry and cattle.

Animals are cared for at the Central Goldfields Shire Pound while Council staff attempt to find their owners. If no owner can be found, animals are assessed for their health and temperament, and then made available for adoption.

The Central Goldfields Shire Pound is located at 70 Burns Street, Maryborough and is open from 11am to 1pm, Monday to Friday (closed Saturday, Sunday and public holidays) or by appointment.

If your pet is lost of missing you can contact Council’s Pound on 0400 690 794 or visit the Central Goldfields Rehoming Facebook page.
