Animal shelters and rescue organisations across the country are reporting unprecedented surges in pet fostering and adoption, as families and individuals have sought companionship amid the coronavirus pandemic. In line with this, Council’s Hawkesbury Companion Animal Shelter has also been rehoming more pets than ever this year. As the lockdown ends, keeping pets safe will continue to be a high priority for all pet owners.
Shelter staff do their utmost to ensure that as many lost pets as possible are reunited with their owners or found suitable new homes, thanks to our positive partnerships with a number of rescue organisations and regular Facebook posts.
Did you know that Shelter staff can reunite lost pets with owners even before they are taken to the Shelter? This can prevent further stress on your pet and you as the owner. It can even save you money if Council staff can return your pet before going to the Shelter.
