Fines and re-homing

If a stray/lost dog is collected within office hours, has some identification on it and has not strayed before, there may be no charge.

If the dog is unable to be returned to its owner, it will be taken to the kennels and charged the appropriate fee.

Finding a stray dog

If you find a stray dog and it is wearing a tag with the owners details, if you are happy to do so contact the owner. Alternatively contact our animal warden.
