Council's Animal Management officers have the right to seize and impound any wandering dog.
If your dog is impounded and is identifiable, you will be contacted by phone and also by written notice.
Failure to claim an impounded dog does not relieve you as the owner from liability for costs incurred.
Dogs that are unclaimed after seven days become the property of Council and may be:
passed to the SPCA
put to sleep.
No dogs will be released until all related fees have been paid.
