Animal Management

Animal Management

The District Council of Coober Pedy assists with lost and found animals. Council impounds any stray and wandering animals as well as surrendered pets.

Council owns the Pound, which is located at the end of Hutchison Street. Council is responsible for the Pound’s maintenance along with the care of any impounded dogs or cats.

Veterinary services are provided currently on a bi-monthly schedule. Please check our Events Calendar for more information. The travelling veterinarian operates out of the Council’s Pound.

Registration of dogs and cats is now via Dogs and Cats Online (DACO) website
