We are still open by appointment for members of the public to reclaim your lost pet, however we are unable to accept any walk-in visitors to the Animal Care Facility at this time.

Expression of interest for animals can be made through the "Request an Expression of Interest Form" button on an animal's adoption profile.

  • Due to current COVID restrictions all appointments booked must be in line with the NSW Public Health Orders.
  • We are taking a limited number of expressions of interest on animals who are ready for adoption to potentially book COVID-Safe meet & greet appointments for suitable adoptees in the future.

Looking for a pet?

If you're considering a new pet, be sure to visit our animals for adoption page to check out the animals that are available for purchase from our Animal Care Facility.

Animal  Cost to adopt
Puppies and dogs $304.10 ($287.20 for pensioners)
Kittens and cats $152 ($130.10 for pensioners)

What does the price of the pet include?

  • The price for dogs includes C3 vaccination, health check, heartworm testing, desexing, micro-chipping, and registration.
  • The price for cats includes F3 vaccination, health check, desexing, micro-chipping, and registration.


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 can be done online by requesting an expression of interest form through the animal's adoption profile.

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. 

You can find the option to request an expression of interest form for the animal you are interested in on their adoption profile. 

Please contact us on 02 4645 4790 for more information about the expression of interest forms. 

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.
