Adopt a Pound Pet

Cowra Council's "Adopt a Pound Pet" Program provides you the opportunity to offer a loving home to dogs and cats currently placed at the Cowra Pound.

The program aims to reduce the euthanasia of cats and dogs that are brought to the Pound with no identification; Pound animals that are adopted are micro-chipped by Council to reduce the cost of registration by the new owner.

To adopt a Cowra Pound Animal, you only need to pay the following registration fees:

* From 1 July 2021, the NSW Government introduced free lifetime registration for rescue pets adopted from council pounds, animal shelters and rehoming organisations.
