If your pet becomes lost the microchip implanted in the animal enables easy identification and provides the relevant contact details to ensure the safe return of your animal. 

Hundreds of wandering, stray or lost animals are unnecessarily impounded each year. Wodonga Council encourages animal owners to be responsible by ensuring their pets are
microchipped, registered and securely contained, suitably tethered or on a lead.

If you lose your pet, contact the Albury Animal Management Facility;

Pound services

In July, 2016, a tender to run Wodonga's pound services was awarded to Canine Country Kennels.

Wodonga will still have a pound service, with the same operator used by AlburyCity, and Wodonga rangers will still carry out animal management in the city including collecting and returning pets, dealing with dangerous and restricted dogs, investigating disputes and fulfilling the council’s legislative obligations. Registration fees will continue to cover this and the costs of a pound service.
