Council does not have the authority to hold or accept birds & or pocket pets, therefore our rangers will not collect them.

If you have lost or found a bird & or pocket pet, you can contact your local vet or check lost animal social media (Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, etc.).

The finder may wish to check with their neighbours to locate the owner.
