Surrendering a Pet

Pet owners may one day find themselves in a position where they are no longer able to care for their animal.

Cats and dogs can be voluntarily surrendered to Council for a small fee. A collection fee will also apply if you are unable to drop the animal to the Mudgee Pound.

When surrendering your pet please provide Council rangers with as much detail as possible as this will help with finding the most suitable new home for the animal.
