Lost and stray dogs

Lost dogs

If you have lost your dog, please let us know by reporting it below. If we find your dog, we can then get in contact with you.

Stray dogs

If you have found and caught a stray dog, our wardens can collect it - but you may need to keep a hold of it until the next working day. Report it below.

Vets will scan a stray dog to see if it is microchipped. If it is chipped the vet will try to contact the owner. You could try this as long as you are happy to transport the dog but make sure you let us know you have found the dog.

Our wardens can't collect dogs that are running loose.

Keeping stray dogs

The dog is someone else's property and the owner may be desperately missing it, so we generally do not rehome stray dogs to members of the public. 

If the dog is not claimed after the period of 7 days, it will be re-homed at that point through charitable organisations.
