Environmental Issues

Stray Dog Control

Animal Control

The Fingal dog wardens and the pound service are operated for us by Ashton Dog Pound. Stray dogs will be taken by the dog warden to the dog pound where they will be kept for 5 days. If you want to reclaim your dog, you will have to pay the pound a reclaim fee of €20, plus a charge of €8 bed and board for each night your dog stays in the Pound.

If you do not have a current dog licence you will have to buy one at a cost of €20. If you don't keep your dog under effectual control you can get a €100 on-the-spot fine and if you don't pay the fine you can be prosecuted and receive a fine of up to €1,270 and / or 3 months imprisonment
