    Zen, I would put a 'found' notice in the local papers- most papers will do this for free. I know if I had lost my dog, I would be scouring the papers everyday to see if someone had found him. We have done this before with one of our cats, no-one claimed him from the paper or from the flyers we put up around our suburb, so he became ours.

    How cute that he prefers cat biscuits, our dog seems to prefer the cat bikkies as well!

    I give mine a treat when I leave (usually a sprinkle of kibble for them to gobble up)... they actually LOVE the fact I am leaving!

    ok.. i feel better again.. i think i'm just tired.. i'm not really a sook. honest!

    i have had a return email from the Sydney Cat and Dog Home, aka Sydney City Pound. i figured that one was really the one that would deal with the area in question. Renbury would be too far away as well. i think Enfield was the other one i called.. i really can't remember now.

    They did not follow up on the one lost dog report they had. or if they did, they have not said so. easy thing to do wouldn't you think? just one simple phone call. but no. they are now saying i must take the dog to them, so they can advertise him on their website, and in 7 days i may pay them $350 and have him back.

    well.. quite frankly, no. i am just not going to do that. little Nelson is too fragile. they can use the photos i sent, and the details i gave them on their site, and in 7 days, if there is no owner coming forward, i will consider the dog mine. this i have told them.

    don't take me the wrong way tho... i will call the council down there and ask about lost dogs, when i figure out which council to call. i really liked the idea of an ad in a local paper, (thank you TinaG, i don't know why i hadn't thought of that myself) i will ask my husband about that as he might know the name of a paper around that area. there are a couple of sites online i checked for a lost dog yesterday, i will register and post of my found dog.

    i will not just slink away and hide this baby, but i will not give him up to a pound 2+hours away where he will not have the TLC he needs, that i can give him in spades.

    I've never known SCDH to be called Sydney City Pound.... I did hear though that they had just scored the contract for Sydney city ( or did I hear they had just lost it??).... eitherway, there are loads or murmurings lately about their euth rate and their reluctance to work with rescues.

    What area was the dog found in? The location of the pound does not neccessarily indicate what local council it holds dogs for. If you can determine the correct impound facility to talk to, you may be able to hold the dog legally under duty of care.

    Either way, you are now breaking the law. You've been instructed to hand the dog in which is what the law says you have to do. You can be served a fine for not delivering the dog.

    4. What do I do with a stray or “seized” animal?
    A person who seizes a dog or cat under the Companion Animals Act must cause it to
    be delivered as soon as possible to its owner (if the owner can be identified) or to the
    council pound or other authorised council officer (eg ranger) (section 62). A person
    who does not comply with this is guilty of an offence and may be liable for a penalty
    of up to $2200.

    why hasn't the pound told me of this then? where is that bit from please Anne? as in, where would i have been able to find it if i looked..

    now i don't want to contact anyone at all, if it means being found and fined myself for wanting to help a dog in need.

    Are you being deliberately secretive about the area in which he was located?

    I can understand someone wanting to hlep a dog. So be it. But the dog may very well be loved by its RIGHTFUL owner. It may have been stolen, it may have been lost and, like your husband, had some well meaning person drive it a few miles away to their home only for it to escape again trying to find its REAL owners.

    Your attitude is wrong. You are not a rescuer saving a dog, you are stealing a dog and breaking the law. Laws are made for a reason.

    If you surrender the dog to the pound you will be able to LEGALLY buy the dog back and own it. If you truly believe the dog will not handle being in a pound envirnment, then plead your case to have the dog remain with you for the impound period under duty of care.

    Told you of what?

    If you are referring to the fact that it is illegal and thta you have to hand it in, it seems they did. You said they told you to bring the dog to them and you are refusing.
