Lost and found pets

The City of Stirling’s animal care facility (ACF) provides a temporary home for lost and stray dogs, as well as an adoption service for unclaimed dogs.  

If your dog is found within the City of Stirling wearing a registration tag and has a microchip, our rangers will bring the dog to the ACF and we will attempt to contact you as soon as possible. Dogs that are unclaimed for a period longer than 7 days will be put up for adoption. 

Stray and roaming dogs have the potential to cause a nuisance or attack members of the community, wildlife and other pets.

If you find a stray or roaming dog, if possible please confine it to your back yard or garage, and phone our Contact Centre with a description of the dog.

Found dogs

Owners can contact the ACF during opening hours to arrange collection. Please note, poundage and sustenance fees apply before a dog is released. If your dog is not registered or microchipped, you will also have to pay registration and microchip fees.
