Adopt a pet

The Shire encourages people who are thinking about purchasing a pet to approach a reputable rescue group. Animals adopted from reputable rescue groups are vet checked, de-sexed, vaccinated, wormed, temperament tested and micro-chipped prior to being re-homed. This not only ensures you are adopting a healthy, suitable pet, but also cuts many expenses.

How to find a pet to adopt - pet rescue

Pets for adoption from the Shire’s Community Animal Shelter are listed on the PetRescue website

Please email the shelter Community.AnimalShelter@mornpen.vic.gov.au and ask for an Adoption Enquiry Form. All pets leave with all required vet work. Your new pet must be registered to the Shire that you reside in and we will provide you with the paperwork to do this before you pick up your new family member.
