Found dogs

Here you can find out what to do if you find a stray dog.

During office hours

If you find a stray dog and restrained it, you can phone: 01422 288001. They will collect the dog and take it to Council's appointed kennels.

Council Dog Wardens scan all seized dogs, but this is not always effective. We cannot guarantee we will be able to contact the owner.

Outside office hours

We do not operate a stray dog collection service outside normal office hours. If you find and restrain a stray, you must report it to the Council's out of hours support.

You can then take it to the Council's kennels, if you are able to.
