Do we have your dog? If we have seized your dog, please contact us.
How much will it cost to reclaim my dog?
If we can return your dog to you quickly we charge £75. You need to pay this fine by credit or debit card to our customer services team.
If we can’t contact you, no one is home, or you can’t pay promptly, we will take your dog to the City Dogs Home. Their charge will be from £84.50. They will add £14.50 for each day the dog has been at the kennels. Your dog will be released once any charges have been paid. There is no option to pay later or pay by instalments.
Your dog can remain at the kennels for up to 7 days. After 7 days unclaimed dogs may be rehomed or, if there is no other option, put to sleep.
Is your dog microchipped?
Since April 2016 all dogs must be microchipped. If your dog is unchipped, or the details recorded are out of date you must microchip your dog or update your details.
The City Dogs Home may be able to implant a chip, or update your details with the microchip database company, but you will need to pay any associated charges.
If your dog is not correctly microchipped or your contact details are not up to date after 21 days, the Dog Warden may issue an enforcement notice.
