Current charges

Dogs entering the kennels are checked for illness or injury and are treated by a vet if necessary.

Owners have seven days to claim their dog and every effort is made by the wardens and kennel staff to contact owners.

There is a charge for this service which must be paid before the dog is collected (cash accepted). 

Dogs reclaimed after one day £100 per dog

Dogs reclaimed after two day £116 per dog

Dogs reclaimed after three day £132 per dog

Dogs reclaimed after four day £146 per dog

Dogs reclaimed after five day £162 per dog

Dogs reclaimed after six overnight stays £176 per dog

Dogs reclaimed after seven overnight stays £192 per dog

Dogs reclaimed and staying with the kennels for an extended period (charge per night) £12.00 per dog

Further, where the Council has found it necessary to pay for an additional service for the dog including the out of hours provision or vet treatment, the fees should be passed on to the owner reclaiming the dog. However there will be discretion given to the Kennels Officer on the level of charging due to unusual circumstances.

Re-homing fees

The price of each dog is variable and will be established taking the characteristics of each dog into consideration.

  • If the dog has received treatment from a vet the cost will be recovered from the person reclaiming
  • If another body authorised to deal with stray dogs uses the kennels a fee will be applied
  • In unusual circumstances the kennels officer will use discretion on the level of charging
