Changes to our stray dogs service
Our stray dog service is currently suspended due to coronavirus restrictions. If you find a stray dog or have lost your contact our Dog Warden on telephone: 01904 552299; we may have information from owners and finders to help put you in touch.
Contact us to:
- report a stray dog
- see if your lost dog has been found
If we find your dog, we'll try to return it to you. If there's no one home or your dog has no collar, we'll take it to the kennels.
The law requires that all dogs must wear a collar and tag bearing the owner's name and address, even if the dog is micro-chipped.
Stray dog fees
We charge £63.00 to return your dog, plus kennel fees and any necessary vet bills.
Kennel fees are charged by the day, no matter how short a time the dog is in our care.
Rehoming stray dogs
We keep dogs for a statutory 7 day period before we try to re-home them. If we're ever unable to find a suitable home, it's possible the dog may be destroyed.
See further information about adopting stray dogs.
