Pound fees increase

IT WILL be harder and more expensive to surrender animals to Clarence Valley Council pounds after council voted to implement a new fee structure in line with national standards.

Tuesday's council meeting approved fee increases from $84 to $205 where an animal comes to the pound and must be killed because its behaviour is unsuitable for rehoming.

There will be two stages to the new process.

The owner will complete a questionnaire and the animal will be subject to an assessment by rangers.

The owner will have the choice of paying the fee to have the animal killed at the pound, take it to a vet to be euthanised or keep the animal.
