Stray dogs

We have a duty to seize any dog found unaccompanied in a public place or on private property where it has not been invited. If you find a stray dog please contact us and we will arrange for a Dog Warden to attend. 

Please contact our customer services team on 01572 722577

The Dog Warden will make all reasonable attempts to reunite stray dogs with its owner if it is wearing a collar and tag, or is micro chipped. If the owner cannot be immediately identified, the dog will be safely kenneled for up to 7 days. The owner will be liable for any costs incurred. If the dog is not collected within seven days we will try to re-home it.
