Reclaim a Dog

Icon Dog

If your dog has been taken to the kennels, you will be required to pay a  fee before your dog is released. This statutory fee covers the Dog Warden's services and kenneling.  

How much will I have to pay?

From the 1st April 2018 the fees are as follows: 

  • Day 1 - £65.00 (day of kennelling)
  • Day 2 - £74.00
  • Day 3 - £83.00
  • Day 4 - £92.00
  • Day 5 - £101.00
  • Day 6 - £110.00
  • Day 7 - £119.00
  • Day 8 - £128.00

(£56 of the fees above go to the Council. If the kennels hold more than one of your dogs, a separate fee will apply to each dog.)

Where can I pay the fee?
