(a)    The Police Division or Dog Warden may impound every animal or dog found in violation of Section 618.01. If such dog is found not wearing a valid dog license tag, the dog shall forthwith be turned over to an officer charged by law with the custody and disposal of such dogs. If such dog is wearing a valid dog license tag or the identity of the owner or custodian is otherwise established, notice shall immediately be given to the licensee, owner or custodian that the dog has been impounded. Such notice may be by telephone or by ordinary mail to the last known address of such licensee, owner or custodian. The dog shall not be released except upon the payment of reasonable expenses for its taking and keeping. Any dog remaining unclaimed within ten days of the mailing of written notice, or of actual notice thereof, shall be sold or otherwise disposed of as provided by law.
   (b)    A record of all dogs impounded, the disposition of the same, the owner's name and address, where known, and a statement of any costs or receipts against such dog shall be kept and furnished monthly to the Mayor.
