Talking to us
Working at the kennels means that there are a variety of tasks that need to be undertaken on a daily basis. Please be aware therefore that it may not always be possible to liaise direct with a member of the team as they could be away from the office. Wherever possible, please let them know you'll be visiting well in advance.
If you should find a stray dog, please contact the City Helpdesk. Please note that the kennels staff will only be able to collect strays Monday to Friday 9.30am to 5pm, not including bank holidays. Alternatively, stray dogs can be received taken to the kennels during normal opening hours - out of hours there is an evening standby to receive dogs which must be arranged via the Civic Offices security staff by phoning 023 9283 4092.
To reclaim your dog (that has strayed)
We charge an initial payment of £55.00 and then £20.00 per day kennel fees to cover our costs. This must be paid, in cash, before a dog can be returned.
Dogs can be collected during normal opening hours subject to staff availability.
If the dog is not claimed after 7 days, it can legally be re-homed. Kennels staff and volunteers work hard to prepare dogs for re-homing. Last year we took in more than 400 dogs and returned or re-homed more than 90% of them.
If you are interested in re-homing a dog, please email email@example.com or leave a message on the re-homing line: 023 9268 8091

Be a dog’s best friend
Last year we took in more than 400 dogs, many in need of extensive rehabilitation and vet care. To keep our long-term residents warm and comfortable, we need your help.
You can pledge single or monthly amounts. Every little helps and 100% of your donation will go toward helping the dogs in our care.
Sponsor the kennels from £120 a year (£10 a month) and you'll be featured on our 'Friends of the Kennels' board as well as receiving regular updates about kennel news and events throughout the year. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Other dog information
Restrictions on where you can take your dog in Portsmouth
Dogs are banned from the beach, except east of the Royal Marine statue, during the summer months from 1st March to 30th September, and from Victoria Park in the city centre at all times. All dogs must be held on a lead if on a designated road - virtually all roads within Portsmouth are designated.
Not only is dog mess unpleasant, it can also be very dangerous - the faeces can contain the roundworm Toxocara Canis. It is your responsibility as a dog owner to clear up after your dog. Failing to clear up is an offence and you can be prosecuted, or given a fixed penalty notice, which is currently £75.00 - please follow the link for more information on dog fouling.
