Impound Fees

Impound fees are not arbitrary and are not set by VACS.  They are set out in each municipality's Animal Control Bylaw and are approved by Mayor and Council.

  • When you come to the Pound to claim your animal you will be required to identify yourself with photo ID.
  • If you are claiming a dog and it is not licenced, you will also be required to purchase a current licence.

We accept cash, debit cards, and VISA.
