I have lost my pet

If you’ve lost your pet, there’s a chance someone may have found it and brought it to the Blacktown Animal Rehoming Centre.

If your cat or dog is registered on the NSW Pet Registry we’ll try and contact you using the address, phone number and email listed on the Registry. If your pet is microchipped and registered on the NSW Pet Registry, a Blacktown Animal Rehoming Centre staff member will drop the animal home to you free of charge.

We understood how upsetting it can be to lose your furry companion. If no one has contacted you about your lost pet, there are several things you can do.

Step 1. Search our database

When an animal is brought to the Blacktown Animal Rehoming Centre, we upload a description and photograph onto our database. This database includes all animals currently held at the Centre.

Search the BARC database now.

If you find your pet on our database, please phone us on 5300 6000 to arrange collection.

Can’t collect your pet yourself? If you’re unable to collect your pet yourself, contact us to arrange a time for one of our team to drop the animal home to you free of charge.


Step 2. Try to find your pet yourself

If your pet doesn’t appear on our database, it means we’re not holding it.

To help you reunite with your furry companion, you can:

  1. Put up posters in your neighbourhood or do a letter box drop with a photograph of your pet and contact phone number.
  2. Join a lost, found and missing pets Facebook group in your area.

Sometimes there’s a delay between an animal becoming lost and it being brought into our Centre. You’re welcome to search our database as many times as you need.
