TELAF aims to reunite lost animals with their owners in the Top End of Australia, and to find forever homes for some homeless animals. Telaf is a free independent service. Telaf cannot guarantee the return of your animal but offers another avenue for searching.
To report a lost or found animal go to Report an animal and follow the prompts. To navigate around this site use the categories below. For instance if you have lost a cat tick on ‘found cats’ to see if anybody has found your lost cat. Also report your cat to us and we will create an entry with your cat’s details. Please go to the expand your search for more ideas. If you are looking for a specific entry please use the ‘search’ box (under Archives/Select a month) type your search criteria in the empty search box and click search. For instance you can look for ‘lost cat tabby’.
The RSPCA council pounds and vets are often the places where lost animals end up. Please keep checking the shelters. Only you know your animal, staff will not necessarily be able to identify your pet from others in the shelter.
This site is dedicated to Sideon – a special little ex feral kitten who became lost in the process of moving to his new home in 2006. It is thought that Sideon was up a tree for 5 days before Power and Water NT, with the help of RSPCA came to his assistance. Sideon would like to thank the person who responded to the letter box drop, Power and Water and RSPCA Darwin for his rather dramatic rescue.
Animals are kept on the site until you notify us that they are reunited.
