(A)   Any cat running at large in violation of the provisions of this code is declared to be a public nuisance, and shall be impounded by the Director as in this subchapter provided, or if the residence of the owner of such cat is determined by the capturing animal control officer before such cat is delivered to the animal shelter, such cat may be delivered to the owner upon said owner’s written acceptance of delivery upon a form to be provided by the Director. If such cat is so delivered to the owner, an impoundment fee of $10 shall be paid by the owner to Director within five days of delivery, and failure to pay said fee shall constitute a separate violation of this section.
   (B)   The warden shall not release any such cat from being impounded until the owner of the cat shall have obtained a license as provided in this code.
