Changes to Pound Release Fees

Published: July 12th 2019

In an effort to minimize the amount of roaming dogs within the township, WTA has implemented a new fee structure for the release of impounded animals.

The first impound release of a registered animal will be FREE of charge.

Any subsequent impounds of a registered animal will incur a release fee of $150.

The release of an unregistered animal will incur a release fee of $200.

A daily sustenance fee of $10 may also apply to impounds. This fee has been reduced from $35 per day.

The new fees have been implemented to reduce the number of animals wandering at large and minimize the number of Penalty Infringement Notices (PINs) being issued.
