Note: When coming to claim your pet, please be prepared to provide identification.
Dogs - If an Animal Services Officer picks up a stray dog and it is wearing a current New Westminster dog license, we will attempt to contact the registered owner. If the dog is returned without being impounded at the shelter, no fees will apply. This is a one-time courtesy.
Note: if the dog is unlicensed, we cannot contact the dog owner, or the dog has been loose before, we will impound the dog and fees will apply.Cats - Impound fees for cats vary depending on if the cat is sterilized and/or identified.
