If your dog or cat has been impounded, you are required to pay a fee prior to release and a daily sustenance fee for the upkeep of your pet. It is also a requirement that if your dog or cat is not micro chipped, then it must be micro chipped prior to release. Similarly, if your dog or cat is not registered, you must also register them prior to release. If the dog or cat is registered you will need to provide proof of this.
