Stray or lost dogs

We recommend that you make sure your dog always wears a collar with your contact details on it and consider having it micro-chipped by a vet.

If we find a stray dog

We will return your dog to you free of charge if we can contact you within 30 minutes of finding it. If we can’t contact you, your dog will be looked after for up to seven days at kennels which you will be charged for.

If your dog isn’t claimed in seven days, it will be signed over to the RSPCA for re-homing as long as it is suitable. Healthy dogs are never destroyed unless they present a danger to the public.
