Camden’s lost pets given a no kill commitment at new pound

June 10, 2017

From 1st June, Camden’s lost dogs and cats will now be held at a new pound, located behind Rossmore Veterinary Hospital, because Camden Council’s agreement with the Liverpool Animal Shelter (Renbury Animal Farm) has come to an end.

Camden Mayor Lara Symkowiak said the Rossmore facility had aligned with the council’s commitment to animal care and a willingness to apply the “no kill” philosophy.

“Council is committed to maintaining the safety of local companion animals and is maintaining its ‘no kill’ policy for found pets,” she said.

“Council’s companion animal ranger will work in collaboration with the animal care facility to provide enrichment programs for impounded animals, as well as assisting with the promotion and rehoming of animals.”

The council voted unanimously in November last year for the ‘no kill’ policy.

The pound is open Monday to Friday from 9am to 5pm, and on the weekend from 9am to 12pm.
