Dog owners to be charged more for stray pets

Sat, 07 Mar 2015


Pet owners will be charged more if their dog strays - under new plans which are awaiting Tynwald approval.

It costs between £100 and £140 for a dog to be picked up, kenneled, cared for and returned home - however currently owners are only being charged £12 a day.

From April this will increase by £10 - if a dog then strays again within the year an additional bill of £25 will be issued.

Environment, Food and Agriculture Minister Richard Ronan says it's time for people to be more responsible:
