Horsham and Mid Sussex District Councils have approved Hammerpond Kennels as the kennel of choice for all stray or unwanted/abandoned dogs in Horsham and surrounding areas. Hammerpond Kennels acts on behalf of both Councils in accordance with procedures as set out by them. We collect stray dogs only when requested by the relevant Council. If you have a stray dog requiring collection you must call the appropriate Council first who will contact us if they require us to collect the animal. If we hold your dog, you will be required to provide proof of identity and ownership of the animal and pay the relevant Council’s charges before the dog can be released. Any Dogs where no arrangement has been made for collection within 7 days will be re-homed as directed by Horsham and Mid Sussex District Councils. We work with a number of animal rescues to rehome all uncollected animals.
The charges for collection are set by Horsham District Council and Mid Sussex District Council respectively and can be paid directly to the Council or paid to us as their agent, for onward processing. For Council specific charges please follow the relevant link for the correct local authority. Please note that the Council charges augment on a daily basis. The relevant Council will depend on where the dog was found and can be always be confirmed with our Team. Before a dog can be released all charges must be paid in full. We accept cheques with a valid guarantee card, cash and all major debit/credit cards (excluding Amex).
