Mount Isa City Council Pound houses dogs and cats that have been found wandering with no identification, and animals that have been surrendered.
All impounded animals are held at the Pound for a minimum of 3 days if the owner is not identifiable or 5 days if the owner is identifiable. After this time animals may be rehomed or euthanised.
If the animal is suitable to be rehomed, we will always advertise on our Mount Isa City Council Pound Facebook page, and do our best to find a suitable home for the animal.
Our greatest hope is to find new owners for any animal that comes to the Pound, and we strongly encourage microchipping and desexing of all animals for thier future welfare and safety.
All available dogs and cats are advertised on our Mount Isa City Council Facebook page, and can be viewed any day Monday to Friday between 9am and 10am and 3pm and 4pm.
Pound Adoption Fees
The adoption fees set by the Council go towards the care of the animal while in the pounds care, as well as a number of services including but not limited to desexing and microchipping.
A general breakdown of these fees include desexing – up to $250 depending on sex and weight, $60 microchipping, registration fees, veterinarian fees, and any additional treatments required, and general day to day running of the facility.
These adoption fees help cover the medical care of the animal while he or she waits for a new home, as well as food and transportation costs. These fees help to provide care for the other animals in the pound that may have medical bills that are much higher than any possible adoption fee.
These fees are similar to most offered from Council owned pounds throughout Australia, and allow us to care for these animals and continue the adoption services.
Reducing these fees would place us in a situation where operating costs would increase and essentially jeopardise our adoption practices.
