Animals and Pets

Owning a pet is highly rewarding. Many people enjoy having a pet for companionship, social interaction and a sense of security. Everyone who owns a pet must be aware of their responsibilities, not only to their pet, but also to the wider community.

Wagga Wagga City Council encourages responsible pet ownership and has a range of services and information relating to animals and pets.

Glenfield Road Animal Shelter

Glenfield Road Animal Shelter (GRAS) is a state of the art facility designed to provide the very best care possible to lost and abandoned animals, with over 1000 dogs and 350 cats cared for by our staff each year.

The animal shelter strives to reunite lost pets with their owners, and rehouse the ones left behind or abandoned.

Pet cats and dogs are required by law to be marked with permanent ID (microchipped) and also given a one-off lifetime registration by the time they are 6 months of age. Council's Glenfield Road Animal Shelter provides both of these services.
