Brisbane City Council has two animal shelters that house homeless, lost or abandoned animals. Council's animal shelters provide a safe environment for lost cats, dogs and other animals.

From 3 October 2011, animal welfare organisation, The Lost Dogs' Home (The Home), has been engaged to administer the animal shelters.  Since 1910, The Home has been a 'voice' for animals without owners.  It has been a pioneer for fair animal laws and continues to work towards reducing the number of lost, abandoned and stray cats and dogs.

The Home is currently managing pound and animal shelters services on behalf of 22 local government agencies, including Brisbane City Council.  It is committed to providing high quality services for the ratepayers and residents of Brisbane, as well as visitors to the city.
