If you are looking for a dog as a pet, then the Council’s Animal Control Section may have the perfect canine pal for you.
Every year about 250 dogs are successfully re-homed from the kennels. Most of the animals which are found new homes have been brought to the kennels by the owners because they are no longer able to look after them.
Prospective new owners are assessed to ensure they are responsible people able to give the animals the attention they deserve.
A charge is made to cover kennel costs.
