Costs of collecting a stray

Stray dogs that have been picked up by the council and held in our kennels will incur the following costs:

  • £22.50 per day kennelling costs
  • £87.50 collection fee
  • £36.00 Administration fee
  • Any veterinary costs incurred during this time

How to pay

Before a dog can be collected by the owner, payment must be made in full. Payment can be made online or using a debit or credit card (call 01295 221916 during office opening hours). Cheques are not accepted.

If the dog is not paid for and claimed by 4pm on a Friday, you will be charged for the weekend’s kennelling costs.
