The Shire of Campaspe is located in north central Victoria, approximately 180 kilometres north of Melbourne. The Campaspe Animal Shelter commenced operation as a consolidated pound and shelter under the Campaspe Shire Council management at the end of October 2016.
The Campaspe Animal Shelter provides a safe place for lost, stray and unwanted pets within the municipality. The shelter team aims to reunite as many animals as possible with their owners, and for those that we are unable to reunite we aim to rehouse as many as possible, ensuring that all healthy animals with suitable health and temperaments are made available for adoption.
The Campaspe Animal Shelter is awarded Outstanding Council Animal Shelter 2018 because it has worked hard to increase their community engagement and communications via a variety of means. Progressive adoption marketing and policies, as well as community outreach and support, are industry leading initiatives.
Their foster and volunteer programs help to ensure the best outcomes for the animals that come into the care of the Shire of Campaspe Animal Shelter.
Here’s an example of transformation, the great work being done by Campaspe Animal Shelter – the story of Pumba.
