Impounded Dogs

Dogs which are impounded by the Port Adelaide Enfield Council will not be released unless all fees and charges relating to the impoundment of the dog are paid and the dog is currently registered (pursuant to the provisions section 62 of the Dog and Cat Management Act 1995).

The Animal Welfare League acts only in the capacity as an impoundment facility and the League or its employees have no input into the processes relating to the impoundment or return of the dog.

Note: The Animal Welfare League cannot release your dog without approval from Council.
