Desexing

Dogs and cats are booked into Council's contracted vet for the animal to be desexed, usually on the next business day. We will transport your new pet to our vet for desexing in the morning. As the new owner, you will then be required to collect the animal from the vet in the afternoon.

Purchasing a dog or cat requires careful consideration

There are many costs and responsibilities to consider before owning a dog or a cat, including micro-chipping and registration costs, 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.



What happens after I have selected a pet?

Before adopting a new pet you may be asked to complete an expression of interest form, this may be done at the office counter or prior to you coming into the facility.

The expression of interest form is designed to help staff to get to know potential adopters better and help make sure that the animal the you are interested in would be a suitable fit for your family.

The forms ask you a number of questions about your lifestyles as well as your expectations for your potential new pet. 

Download and complete the:

Forwarded your completed application to: acf.email@campbelltown.nsw.gov.au

Please see Looking for a pet? to find more information regarding the adoption process at Campbelltown Animal Care Facility.



Surrendering your pet

Before surrendering your animal to the Animal Care Facility, please see the following information as we will request that you attempt to rehome the animal yourself, before bringing it to the Animal Care Facility as a last resort.

See our tips for safely rehoming your animal(101KB, PDF) as well as rescue groups you may be able to contact. Please look through this information thoroughly and attempt everything you can to rehome your animal. Once you have exhausted all these possibilities, please contact the Animal Care Facility on 02 4645 4790 as our ability to take surrenders will depend on our capacity at any given time.

If you are surrendering your animal, please ensure you bring the following information with you, as the animal will not be accepted without these documents:

  • Proof of up to date vaccinations (vaccination certificates and vet receipts)
  • Certificate of Identification or Certificate of Registration
  • Any other paperwork you may have relating to the animal.

Please note when you attend the facility, our staff will confirm details regarding the history of the animal, it's personality and an initial behaviour assessment will be performed. You as the owner, will then be required to complete some paperwork and pay the applicable fee (See Council's fees and charges for details).

Please contact us on 02 4645 4790 for further details and to confirm we have room in the facility to accept your surrendered animal.
