Lost & found pets

Lost your pet

If your pet was wearing its registration tag, we will try to contact you if we find your pet.  Please update your contact details on our system so we can contact you.  If you haven't heard from us, please contact the Cranbourne Animal Shelter Lost Dogs' Home.

If you don't think your pet was wearings its registration tag, the Lost Dogs Home keeps a list of dogs and cats that have been found.

The RSPCA has some advice for what else you can do to try and find your pet as quickly as possible.


Found a pet

If you find someone else's pet, please note down the number on the registration tag. You can then contact us by phone on 9705 5200 or by email at [email protected]. We will attempt to locate the owner for you.



A local laws officer is available at all times in case of an emergency. Please contact an officer in situations such as:

  • dogs attacking, chasing or threatening people and/or animals
  • livestock wandering on the road

The RSPCA has a list of Animal Emergency Centres in case the pet appears injured. We also have more tips on how you can help an injured animal.
