 About the Animal Shelter

The Sutherland Shire Council Animal Shelter is the local shelter facility for two Sydney council areas: Sutherland Shire Council and City of Sydney Council. Our facility located at Taren Point, is built to house dogs and cats whilst they wait for their owners or to be adopted. 

As a council shelter, we are the main point of call for lost and found dogs and cats. We assist members of the public in locating their lost animals, while also reuniting animals, that have been found, with their owners.

We assist the public and vets with information regarding responsible pet ownership and facilitate understanding of companion animals in relation to the law.
