Immediate Fee Increases

Due to sudden and unforeseen restrictions imposed by rendering plants on the acceptance of barbiturate-euthanized animals, costs of body disposal at PADLS New Bolton Center (NBC) have markedly increased, necessitating immediate fee increases. Beginning August 1, 2019, PADLS disposal fees for all carcasses will be implemented as follows:

  • $10 for less than 25 pounds
  • $21 for 26 to 250 pounds
  • $42 for greater than 250 Pounds

Disposal fees are also subject to separate site specific fees or additional contract charges. Please call the lab you are submitting to with any specific questions.
