The following dogs have been impounded at City of Darwin Pound, Boulter Road. Council also maintains a lost & found register and may already have your dog recorded as found.

TELAF

A website called Top End Lost and Found is targeted at the Darwin area and aims to reunite lost animals with their owners. It also aims to find homes for some homeless animals. This is a free service.


Managing Dogs

It is the dog owner's responsibility to adequately contain or control their dog at all times. This includes when the dog

  • is being transported within a vehicle or on a vehicle tray,
  • is home alone
  • is being exercised (unless in an off-lead area, however the dog must be under voice control).

Many dogs are terrified by thunder and lightning, and manage to escape containment during tropical storms, often injuring themselves in the process. Dog owners should regularly check fences for areas that may allow their dog to escape through, under or over.

Owners must ensure that their dog is microchipped and wearing a collar with Council tag to assist in the rapid identification and return of their pet. An identification tag with a current contact phone number is also useful.


Enforcement

Owners of dogs found At Large may be fined in accordance with By-Laws. (67(1))
