Adopting an animal

If you’re thinking of bringing a new animal into your home, see what companion animals and livestock are available at the animal rehoming centres. Check back in a few days if you can't find the pet of your choice.

The staff at the animal rehoming centres will give you advice and assess if the animal is suitable for your circumstances.

All animals at Brisbane City Council's animal rehoming centres have had full health and behaviour checks, including:

  • desexing
  • vaccinating
  • worming and flea treating
  • microchipping
  • heart worm testing and prevention.

Pet owner’s kit

When you adopt your pet, you will receive:

  •  six months free registration 
  • a desexing certificate 
  • vet treatment information.
