Wandering Dogs 

  • Contact City of Burnside on (08) 8366 4200 if you find a dog wandering.
  • Council officers will attempt to pick up wandering dogs as soon as possible after notification.
  • Once the dog has been picked up, Council will attempt to locate the owner (should the dog have a disc). If the owner is located then they are returned and an expiation notice may be issued. If the owner is not home a card is left in their letterbox and dog is taken to the Animal Welfare League located at 1-19 Cormack Rd Wingfield, phone (08) 8348 1300.
  • If unclaimed, the dog will become the property of the Animal Welfare League after 72 hours.
  • Before an impounded dog can be released, proof of ownership and payment is required to be made at the Civic Centre at 401 Greenhill Road, Tusmore.
