Wandering Dogs

If dogs without registration tags, ID tags or a microchip are found wandering they will be impounded. Wandering dogs will also be impounded if if the owner cannot be contacted or there is a record of previous offences.  Fines and fees for impounding and sustenance must be paid before a dog will be released from the pound, with unregistered dogs having to be registered before release. Dogs are only impounded for 72 hours, after which they will be made available for re-homing.
