Found dogs

If you find a stray dog

  • If the owner is identifiable from the collar and the tag, please return the dog direct to them
  • During our opening hours, please call 01732 227000. Our Animal Control Officer may be able to collect the dog, but if they are not available, you may be asked to take it to our holding kennels.
  • Outside of our opening hours, please call 01732 227000. You may be asked to hold on to the dog until the next working day or to take it to our holding kennels.

Stray dogs are held for seven days and, if they are not claimed, they will be transferred to a rehoming charity. We regret are unable to influence re-homing decisions made by the charity.
