Clarence Valley Animal Shelter

We aim to reunite or re-home all suitable, healthy animals that arrive at our facilities.

Our animal shelters are located in South Grafton and Townsend.


The South Grafton shelter on Induna St is open 8.30am-3pm, Monday to Friday. The Townsend facility is open by appointment only.


Missing pets

If your pet is microchipped and arrives at the shelter or is picked up by a council ranger, we’ll try to contact you to arrange its safe return.

If it doesn’t have a microchip or identity tag, get in touch with us as soon as possible:

Adopt a pet

Sometimes the animals in our care will come up for sale on our Facebook page.

All cats and dogs sold through the animal shelter are desexed, vaccinated, microchipped and lifetime registered. Costs will vary due to the size and sex of the animal. 

For all other animal-related enquiries, call the Clarence Valley Council on 02 6643 0200.
