Adopt A Pet

Choosing a new pet for your family is an exciting time and by choosing the adoption option you are giving a new home to an animal in need. The dogs and cats listed on our Pets for Adoption page are currently looking for their new forever homes and would love to have you visit.

 All our pets are:

  • Temperament tested
  • Healthy
  • Vet Checked 
  • De-sexed 
  • Vaccinated
  • Wormed
  • Microchipped
  • Registered 

Anyone is welcome to visit and adopt a pet but please note that if you live outside of the Mornington Peninsula Shire Council you will need to check with your Local Council as to what their requirements are for transfer of Animal Registration and the amount of pets permitted on your property.

Pets available for adoption can be viewed on our Pets for Adoption or on the Pet Rescue website.

The Community Animal Shelter is open to public Monday to Friday 9 am - 5 pm, Saturday and Sunday 10 am to 4 pm and is located at 130 Watt Road, Mornington.

Please contact the Community Animal Shelter on 1300 850 600 or CASGroup@mornpen.vic.gov.au and one of the friendly staff will gladly discuss any of the animals that you are interested in adopting.

The Shire encourages people who are thinking about purchasing a pet to also approach reputable Rescues Groups.
