If you have lost a dog you should report the dog as missing immediately.
You will need to give as much detail as possible, such as:
- where and when the dog was last seen
- the colour, size and breed
- whether it is tagged or micro chipped.
Dogs have been known to stray a considerable distance from home so we advise that you ask around in the surrounding area(s).
Seized dogs are taken to the kennels immediately and are kept for 8 full days, after which time attempts will be made to re-home found dogs wherever possible.
If your dog has been seized you must contact Animal Wardens on 01254 492024. Seized dogs must be collected within 8 days. Before your dog leaves the kennels, you will be required to pay any kennelling and/or veterinary charges that have been incurred.
All dog owners have a legal responsibility for their dogs and their behaviour. Whilst your dog is straying, you are unable to fulfil these responsibilities and have no control over your dog.
