All dogs four (4) months of age or older must wear a collar displaying their rabies vaccination tag and dog license tag. Dogs or cats will be impounded if they are found without a collar having the owner's identification or license affixed. If a stray animal is found with identification, it will be held for 12 days. If a stray animal is found without identification, it will be held for 7 days. If a stray animal is not reclaimed by its owner within the holding period, it will become available for adoption through Prince George County Animal Services and Adoption Center.
As of July 1st, 2012:
If the animal is wearing an identification tag, its owner will be notified of its impoundment and will be charged a fee for its release. For the first offense, this fee will be $20.00; for the second offense, it will be $30.00; and for the third and any additional offenses, the fee will be $40.00. An additional boarding fee of $10.00 will be charged for each day the animal is not picked up.
