If your dog has been collected and brought to PADS

If your dog has been collected by the dog wardens and brought to PADS there will be a prescribed charge of £25.00 per dog from Perth & Kinross Council plus we will then charge £12.00 per day or part of a day for the care of your dog.

This fee must be paid on collection by the owner, by cash or card. Please bring a form of ID with you when you collect your dog.

If your dog is not microchipped you can still claim your dog, you will be contacted by Perth & Kinross Council after collection, dog control officers will give you a notice period of 21 days to have your dog chipped. If after the 21 day period your dog is still not microchipped a report will be sent to the procurator fiscal.

Dogs not claimed after 7 days will be deemed unwanted and will be rehomed by PADS.
