Caring for Your Dog

If you need more advice or would like to adopt a dog from the Narromine Shelter you can contact the Council's Senior Ranger on 02 6889 9999.

It is important when choosing a dog that you decide on a breed that is suitable to your lifestyle and home. If you are unsure as to what breed is suitable for you, your family can speak with the Ranger for advice.

As a dog owner, it is your responsibility to make sure your dog is healthy, safe, well cared for and does not create a nuisance in your neighbourhood.

Ensure your dog has a collar with a tag showing your contact phone number.

Unless you are planning to breed your dog, have it desexed to avoid unwanted litters.
