Looking for a pet?
If you're considering a new pet, be sure to visit the dogs and cats for sale page to check out the animals available for purchase from our Animal Care Facility.
All puppies and dogs cost $356 ($340 for pensioners) to adopt.
All kittens and cats cost $234 ($220 for pensioners) to adopt.
The price for puppies under six months of age includes C3 vaccination, heartworm testing desexing, and micro-chipping.
The price for dogs over six months of age includes C3 vaccination, heartworm testing, desexing, micro-chipping, and registration.

When you have selected a pet and finalised the adoption payment, dogs and cats are booked into Council's contracted vet for the animal to be desexed typically the next business day. We will transport your new pet to our vet for desexing in the morning. The new owner is to collect the animal from the vets in the afternoon. Puppies and kittens are permitted to go home with the new owner once the adoption payment is finalised, and a desexing booking is made for a later date at Council's contracted vet when the animal is large enough for surgery.
Purchasing a dog or cat requires careful consideration as it is a life changing commitment. There are many costs and responsibilities to consider with owning a dog or a cat, including microchipping and registration, maintaining animal health (worming, vaccination, regular exercise), providing secure and comfortable housing, and caring for your pet responsibly so it does not become a nuisance to neighbours.
