By , Columbian county government and small cities reporter

Fees to reclaim lost pets in unincorporated Clark County will increase beginning in January.

The fees to reclaim pets picked up by residents or Clark County Animal Protection and Control will increase by $15 per animal beginning Jan. 1, according to a county news release. New fees will include $40, from $25, for first impounds in a 12-month period; $65 for second impounds; and $115 for subsequent ones.

The county partners with the Humane Society for Southwest Washington for sheltering, and fees go toward lost pet services. The complete fee schedule can be found at https://southwesthumane.org/lost-found/stray-and-lost-pets/.

The Humane Society sheltered approximately 1,850 animals in Clark County in 2019, according to the county.
