Free Microchipping - 10am to 2pm

A high number of lost animals that we receive at both of our shelters are not microchipped or if chipped, their owners details are out of date. This causes so much unnecessary stress for your beloved pet.

Please take advantage of this opportunity to microchip your pet for free.


There is no need to book, however all dogs and cats are required to be secured. Cats must be contained in a carrier. Dogs must be secured on a lead. If your dog is not friendly towards other animals, please advise a staff member before you enter our shelter.


Do you need your animals microchip details checked or updated? You are welcome to come along and we will assist you.

Dog Wash Fundraiser 9am to 3pm

Our friends from Aussie Pooch Mobile Dog Wash have volunteered their services to provide dog washing for your pooch. It's $25 .... the same cost for all pooches regardless of their size. Please come along and support this fundraiser... the proceeds will assist us to care for the hundreds of lost animals that stay with us after their impound period finishes and become part of our Socares Family.
