We are here to offer help and advice to the farming community in Monmouthshire.
We work to improve the health and welfare of livestock whilst on farm, in transit and at markets.
The service also deals with the licensing of certain establishments where animals are kept.

We will maintain a register of all dogs that have been reported to us as found and/or impounded by our holding kennels. Please contact us on 01633 644705 or Whitewall Kennels on 01633 880362 to check if your dog is being held there.
If your dog is being held at Whitewall Kennels there will be a release fee of £30 payable per dog to Monmouthshire County Council in addition to any kennelling, veterinary fees and any other costs incurred. Kennelling costs are £6 per day per dog and will be held for up to 7 days. Payment to be made direct to the kennels by cash, credit or debit card, cheques are not accepted.
Owners are legally required to ensure that their dog wears a collar and tag detailing the owner’s name and address. Permanent methods of identification, such as a microchip or tattoo, in addition to a collar, are also highly recommended. Owners must keep their dogs under control at all times and not allow them to stray or foul pavements or public areas.
In partnership with the Dogs Trust, we hold regular micro-chipping sessions in an effort to reduce the number of strays that are impounded each year.
You can get your dog micro-chipped for a cost of £9.99 or free if you receive a means tested benefit. For further information contact our recommended kennels:

At a time when I thought the Council was trying to save money I have received over the period of two weeks five communications from the `Shared Benefits Service` relating to `Claim Re-Assesed`, `Change in Income`, etc, all being many pages of incomprehensible figures taken to six decimal points. This culminates in a demand for unpaid Council Tax for the year of 67p, payable by Nov 15th, after which, Bailiffs perhaps? You couldn`t make it up. Continue reading 'Council tax and benefits' >
