City of Greater Dandenong Animal Management

During the COVID-19 pandemic Greater Dandenong City Council will only be providing essential services to the local community.

As a result, there will be some changes to the services the Animal Management Team usually provide.

Council will continue to assist in cases involving wandering dogs, dog attacks and escaped livestock.

However, during this time Council will not be picking up stray cats until further notice. 

We also recommend a range of essential health and safety precautions are followed when walking your dog, and/or using our parks or dog off-leash areas.

We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.

The hours of the Lost Dogs Home in Cranbourne have also changed. Anyone wishing to collect an impounded dog please take note of the modified hours below:

  • Monday to Friday 1pm to 6pm
  • Saturday and Sunday 9am to 12.30pm
  • Public Holidays: Closed (open 9 am to 12.30pm on Easter Saturday and Sunday)
