Stray Dogs

Tell us you've lost your dog

You should call:

  • our Customer Services team on 01795 417850 during office hours
  • 07795237479 between 5pm and 9pm, weekdays and 9am and 9pm at weekends and on on bank holidays

There is no stray dog service on Christmas Day, 25 December, Boxing Day, 26 December or Easter Sunday.

If you lost your dog near the boundary with another Council, they may have collected it instead.

If you call outside of office hours, an officer will contact you the next working day.

If we have already found your dog, we may have sent it to the kennels. To help reunite your dog sooner, you can contact KareBear Kennels.

If we find your dog straying more than once, we’ll take it straight to the kennels and you may need to pay a fee to get it back.
