If you lose your dog and it is seized by us as a stray, you will have to pay our administration fee, the costs of collection, kennelling fees and any veterinary fees that we have incurred to get your dog back.
An administration fee of £45 is charged.
The collection fee depends on the date and time that the stray dog was originally collected by the kennels' staff.
|Collection day||Collection time||Cost|
|Weekdays||8am to 5pm||£50|
|Weekdays||5pm to 11:59pm||£65|
|Weekends and bank holidays||8am to 11:59pm||£70|
Stray dogs will not be collected by kennels' staff between 11:59pm and 8am on any day.
There is a kennelling fee of £14 for each full or part day, starting from when the dog is seized.
Vets fees may be incurred to keep your dog in good health while in kennels.
Arranging for your dog to be returned
Our contractor for stray dog collection is Knights Kennels.
Dogs will be returned to owners at a pre-arranged time and place between 9am and 5pm – this is open to reasonable negotiation with kennel staff and owner.
Dogs cannot be collected direct from the kennels.
