Reporting a stray or lost dog

A Dog

Our dog wardens respond to complaints of stray and lost dogs on a regular basis. If you wish to report a stray or lost dog, please contact our Customer Service Centre on 0345 678 9006.

If you have picked up a stray dog, call the dog warden on the number above, who will collect it from you. It is not advisable to pursue a dog which is unwilling to be handled, but you can advise the dog warden of its whereabouts.

The dog warden will attempt to find the dog and catch it. The warden has the training, experience and equipment to do this safely.

The dog will be taken to the kennels to await collection, or re-homing. A stray-dog collection fee from and kennelling fees are payable by the owner upon collection of their dog. Unclaimed dogs will be re-homed after 7 days.
