Last year (2012), the council's dog wardens picked up 441 stray dogs in North Lincolnshire.
By law all dogs must wear a collar and tag. The tag must have the name and address of the dog's owner written on it. This ensures that if the dog wardens find a stray dog, they can contact the owner.
If a dog is found and taken to Sangreat Kennels, the council will make a charge (including straying fine) to the owner or their representative when they collect the dog. The kennel will not release the dog until all fees are paid in full.
The fees for the release of a dog depend on how long the dog has been in the kennels, what time it was accepted into the kennels and if the dog warden had taken the dog to the kennels.
The fees can be found on the council's website www.northlincs.gov.uk/environment/animals/stray-dogs/straydogfees/
