New agreement with Cumberland Council Hawkesbury Companion Animal Shelter

Hawkesbury Companion Animal Shelter has commenced receiving companion animals from the Cumberland City Council Local Government Area under a new agreement with Hawkesbury City Council.

Cumberland City Council approached Hawkesbury Companion Animal Shelter about accepting animals from the Cumberland Local Government Area. In response, Hawkesbury City Council conducted a capacity review which confirmed that the shelter could accept additional companion animals from the Cumberland area.

Both Councils have now signed an agreement in relation to how companion animals are received from Cumberland and how they are to be cared for by the staff at Hawkesbury Companion Animal Shelter. The agreement will be reviewed annually.

Hawkesbury City Council looks forward to assisting Cumberland Council with the management and rehoming of companion animals from their Local Government Area.

  • Monday to Friday – 9am to 12:30pm and 2pm to 4:30pm
  • Saturday – 9:30am to 11:30am
  • Sunday – 7am to 9:30am.
