City of Karratha

Impounded Dogs

If your dog is missing, it may have been picked up by a Ranger and taken to the City's Animal Pound Facility. Impounded dogs may be claimed by appointment Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday from 9am - 4pm or Thursday 9am - 5pm.

Poundage fees are applicable and dog owners are required to register their dog/s or provide proof of registration before the dog/s will be released. Proof of sterilisation is also required for registration purposes.

Before coming in to pay the applicable fees, an appointment must be made for the return of your pet.

If your dog is found by one of our Rangers and is wearing a current City registration tag, the City of Karratha will attempt to contact you. A microchip will speed this process up. 

Dogs that have been picked up by Ranger Services and are not claimed within a minimum of 72 hours are re-homed where suitable.

If you’re looking for a new family pet you can view the dogs on the SAFE Karratha website.
