The Ballarat Animal Shelter is closed to the public. You can make an appointment with the Shelter on 5334 2075 if you are looking to adopt a pet.

The City of Ballarat’s pound service (collecting your lost pet) is still operating. Please call 5334 2075 to collect your pet.

Owning pets is very rewarding. They provide us with company, stress relief and unconditional love.

It's important to also understand what it takes to be a responsible pet owner.
