·       Collection of stray dogs between the hours of 8.30am and 10pm, this being the point at which the Council accepts responsibility and receives the stray dog.

·       Kennelling of strays until re-united with their owners, they are re-homed, or the statutory requirement of the local authority ends.


2. That a review of the fees and charges charged to owners, be approved.  This will include the statutory fee and recovery of expenses associated with seizing and detaining a stray dog.
