(C) Any dog which is found to have been treated in such manner as is made unlawful by this section may be taken up and impounded by the Animal Control Officer. Redemption of such dog may be made by the owner thereof upon compliance with the requirements of § 3 68; provided, however, that the Animal Control Officer may impose such other requirements for redemption as are appropriate to ensure treatment of such dog that complies with this section.
