Stray and Wandering/Roaming Animals
If you find or sight a stray or wandering/roaming animal contact Council on 9249 4000 (after hours will be directed through to our After Hours service) or email

Be careful when approaching stray animals. They may be afraid and attack. If you're unsure, wait for professional animal control officers.

If the animal is friendly, contain it on your property to ensure its safety. Check for an identification tag.

Animals can also be taken to a vet clinic to be scanned for a microchip and the owner contacted.

Brimbank does not have animal shelters ('pounds').
