  • 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. We charge £63.00 to return your dog, plus kennel fees and any necessary vet bills.

Note: Kennel fees are charged by the day, no matter how short a time the dog is in our care.

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.

Rehoming stray animals

We keep dogs for a statutory seven 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.

Fostering a stray dog

When we rehome stray dogs, we make every effort to advise new owners about the animal. However, the responsibility for the dog's temperament, health and condition passes to the new owner when they sign the adoption form.

Dogs are fostered on a trial basis and if the owner decides that the dog is unsuitable during this time, they must return it to us.

Conditions of adopting an animal

If you decide to adopt a dog, you should be aware that:

  • you're responsible for ensuring the dog receives veterinary treatment when required, including annual boosters/inoculations
  • the dog must live inside your house and not outside
  • the dog must wear a collar at all times with an identity tag with your name and address
  • the dog must be micro-chipped and neutered
  • you must comply with all legislation and local by-laws relating to dog ownership, including dog fouling and being kept under proper control
  • the dog must be properly fed and cared for and not allowed to stray or cause nuisance
  • you'll agree to a home visit prior to adopting the dog and any time after this by prior arrangement
  • the dog must not change ownership without our prior consent
