Dog Pound Information
This section of our website contains the record of dogs currently held by the Port Pirie Regional Council. Upon release of a dog; maintenance, seizure fees, and registration if required will be charged. Expiations may be issued for dogs found wandering at large and/or unregistered.
To be a responsible dog owner, you need to ensure that certain precautionary steps are taken to prevent your dog from escaping and roaming free.
Dogs may not appear on the website on the day impounded but will appear within 24 hours. Please check website regularly and contact our office for any further enquiries.
Any dog NOT CLAIMED within 72 hours of the time of being seized will then be under the control and management of Council. If your dog is impounded please contact our dog management officer on 0409 206 695 to arrange collection of your dog.

My Dog has been Impounded, How Do I Get My Dog?
To collect your dog from the Pound, it will be necessary to make an appointment with a Dog Control Officer as an officer is not permanently located at the pound. You will need to come to the Council offices at Ellen Street Port Pirie with the following items to arrange collection of your dog:
- Your driver's licence or other form of identification that shows your current address
- Proof of ownership of the dog
Each dog will be charged a $35 seizure fee as well as $15 per day that the dog is held at the pound. If the dog is also unregistered and over three months of age, it will also be necessary to register the dog before it is released.
Expiation notices may be issued for any offences incurred under the Dog and Cat Management Act 1995
