Animal Adoptions

If an animal is suitable to be rehomed, we will always advertise on our Mount Isa City Council Animal Management Facebook page, and do our best to find a suitable home for the animal.

All animals rehomed from the facility will be microchipped and desexed unless a vet advises this would be detrimental to the animals. 

If an animal is too young to be desexed, a voucher will be issued and provided to the new owner. 

The Animal Management Facility is located at 21 Richardson Road.

The facility is open to the public from 9:00am to 10:00am, and from 3:30pm to 4:30pm, Monday to Friday.

The adoption fees set by the Council go towards the care of the animal while in the pound's care, as well as a number of services including but not limited to desexing and microchipping.

A general breakdown of these fees includes desexing – up to $250 depending on sex and weight – $60 microchipping, registration fees, veterinarian fees, and any additional treatments required, and the 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.

For costs, please refer to Council's fees and charges for pricing.

Any enquiries can be made by calling Council on 07 4747 3200.
