Before your dog leaves the kennels, you will be required to pay any kennelling and/or veterinary charges that have been incurred.
Seized dogs are taken to the kennels immediately and are kept for 7 full days, after which time the former owner no longer has any ownership rights to the dog and attempts will be made to re-home stray dogs wherever possible.
All dog owners have a legal responsibility for their dogs and their behaviour. Whilst your dog is straying, you are unable to fulfill these responsibilities and have no control over your dog.
