Companion Animal Surrender
Council understands that sometimes circumstances can change and you may need to surrender your companion animal. Companion animals can be surrendered to the Wollondilly Animal Shelter during opening hours by the registered owner for a fee. Alternatively, Council can arrange for collection of a surrendered animal for a fee.
Wollondilly Shire Council has an excellent re-homing rate and will only euthanase your animal with your consent, or if officers determine the animal is unsafe or unfit to be re-homed. When you surrender an animal, you will be required to complete a surrender form to assist Council officers with re-homing your animal.
