Sutherland Shire Council Animal Shelter houses dogs and cats that find themselves lost and stray. The shelter takes pets from the Sutherland Shire Council and City of Sydney Local Government Areas. The two municipalities have worked in collaboration for over ten years in caring for and rehoming animals and providing education to the community on responsible pet ownership.
In addition to dogs, cats, puppies and kittens, the animal shelter also takes in stray rabbits, guinea pigs, chickens and roosters, sheep, goats and pigs. All of the impounded animals are housed at the animal shelter facility and cared for by staff and volunteers until they are either reclaimed by their owners or if unclaimed, they are adopted to new families or transferred to rescue groups.
