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.

The Adoption Room is open to view any of the lovely cats up for adoption Saturdays between 10am to 1pm or please contact the Community Animal Shelter on 1300 850 600 or CASGroup@mornpen.vic.gov.au and the friendly shelter staff will gladly arrange a time that is suitable for you to attend.  Pets available adoption can be viewed on the Pet Rescue website or our Pets for Adoption page.

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