Central Goldfields Shire’s pound is brimming to capacity with cats and dogs looking for a new home.
The shire’s local law officers and rangers are strongly urging community members to adopt their new pet from the pound which cannot take any more animals.
Many of the pets, which are all looking for a new and loving home, at the pound have been found wandering the streets of Maryborough while others have been surrendered, local laws officer Graeme Fletcher said.
“I understand that people’s circumstances change and they need to surrender their pets but many of the pets here, people would be missing them,” he said.
Many of the dogs and cats at the pound are well trained and would be ideal for companionship or as a family pet, Mr Fletcher said.
Also, many of the pets that are available at the pound are good with children and other animals, rangers say.
For more information about any of the pets at the pound or to volunteer, contact the rangers on 0418 320 210.
