Revolutionising Animal Care: Opening of the new state-of-the-art Pooraka Pound, setting new standards in Animal Welfare
The City of Salisbury and the City of Tea Tree Gully embarked on an exciting joint partnership to deliver a state-of-the-art dog pound facility that addresses the needs of our community, along with the needs of our furry friends.
This facility will set new standards for animal welfare with a safe and welcoming place for dogs to be reunited with their owners. Incorporating the latest above floor kennels for comfort and hygiene, the new pound provides dual access so staff can safely move any dog that needs extra care. The facility also enables staff to enter the facility without exiting their vehicles so they can handle dogs in a secure environment that ensures animal and staff safety.
The Pooraka Pound was officially opened by Mayor Gillian Aldridge OAM of the City of Salisbury and Mayor Marija Ryan of the City of Tea Tree Gully on Thursday 23 March 2023.
