Animal Pound

If your dog or cat is found running at large, they will be kept in Elk Point Animal Pound. The impound fee, per day, is $20.00.

If your animal is unlicensed, you'll need to obtain a license before you can claim them from the pound. You can reclaim your dog or cat from the pound within 48 hours from the time of impoundment (excluding Saturdays, Sundays and holidays) by paying to the Town of Elk Point the impoundment fee and any other pertinent fees (if required), as well as obtaining a current license for the dog/cat.
