Territory and Municipal Services are getting word out that they run a lost and found service for dogs:

Did you know you can report lost and found dogs on the Territory and Municipal Services website? The lost and found service provided by Domestic Animal Services (DAS) can help reunite Canberrans with their four-legged friends.

“If you find a dog roaming or are missing your beloved pet, you can go online to fill out a form which, once submitted, automatically lists the dog on a lost or found table,” said Peter Dinan, Manager of Operations and Registrar of Domestic Animal Services.

“Losing a dog can be quite a distressing time and the process of returning a pooch to its owner is made a lot quicker and easier by making this information available to the public. The online tables detail the date the dog was found or went missing, the breed of dog, its colour and the suburb in which it was found or lost. A photo of the animal can also be uploaded for easy identification.

“These tables are a good first point of call when searching for lost and found dogs, giving the owner the opportunity to directly contact the person holding the dog and vice versa. However, although we have this service, it is very important to ensure your pet’s registration and micro-chip details are current and they are wearing their identification.”
