About the shelter

Glenfield Road Animal Shelter provides the very best care for lost and abandoned companion animals. Over 1000 dogs and 350 cats are cared for by our staff each year.

The new facility, opened in 2015, is a clean, healthy and safe environment which is temperature controlled, secure and staffed by professional animal rangers. It has a designated viewing area and self-sustained veterinary room. 

We strive to reunite lost pets with their owners, and rehouse the ones left behind or abandoned. 

The Glenfield Road Animal Shelter is open to the public Monday - Saturday between 1:00pm and 4:15pm, and our Animal Management Rangers are available during business hours on (02) 6971 4651.

If you are looking for a family pet, you can see pictures of the animals that are currently in the shelter. The animal management team can help you find the right pet that fits in with your family and lifestyle.
