Wagga Wagga Dog Pound
The Glenfield Road Animal Shelter is open to the public weekdays between 1:00pm and 4:15pm. If these times are unsuitable alternative arrangements can be made by phoning (02) 6932 9051.
The Glenfield Road Animal Shelter (GRAS) is a facility operated by Wagga Wagga City Council for housing lost, stray or dumped Companion Animals. Approximately 1,000 dogs and 400 cats are housed at the Shelter each year.
One of the most important tasks of the Animal Management Rangers is to reunite pets with their owners, and rehouse the ones left behind or dumped.
Rangers also provide a host of other services including advice on pet ownership, dog/cat complaints, collect roaming dogs, investigate dog attacks, assist individuals with general animal management queries.
In order to do this, advertising campaigns and regular mail drops reminding owners to microchip and lifetime register their pets as well implementing educational programs and starting a volunteers program at the Shelter has become an important factor in showing the general community what the Glenfield Road Animal Shelter's role is.
The animal shelter has the capacity to house 24 dogs and 20 cats at any one time. For stray dogs that have been collected by the public, there is a Deposit Pen which is open weekends for dogs only and is cleared daily.
