Lost pets are now one step closer to being reunited with their owners with the help of Council’s new ‘Fairfield City Lost and Found Pets’ Facebook page.

The page will not only assist with reuniting lost pets with their owners, but also in finding unclaimed or rescued animals new homes, promoting Council-run pet programs and for general information regarding responsible pet ownership.

Fairfield City Mayor Frank Carbone is encouraging pet owners to like and follow the page and remember to practice responsible pet ownership. 

“Council officers have reported an increase in stray animals being picked up with no registration or microchipping details, making reuniting lost pets with their owners difficult,” Mayor Carbone said.

“The new Facebook page has been created to identify lost pets and ensure they are safely returned home to their families.”

Council is also appealing to members of the community to report wandering animals.

“Wandering animals are at risk of being hurt in a road accident, so if you see an unaccompanied animal, you can help them find their way home by contacting a local vet or Council to have them collected,” Mayor Carbone said.

To find out more about how to register your pet, Council-run pet programs, responsible pet ownership, or if you’re looking to adopt a new four-legged family member, visit www.fairfiedcity.nsw.gov.au/Services-Animals-and-Pets.

Make sure you like and follow ‘Fairfield City Council Lost and Found Pets’ on Facebook to stay up to date with lost and found animals from the area.
