If you find a stray dog, contact us on 023 9268 8181. You can take stray dogs to the kennels during opening hours, or kennels staff may be able to collect strays (subject to staff availability) Monday to Friday 9.30am to 5pm, not including bank holidays.
Outside of kennels opening hours, the dog can be received at the kennels until 8pm on any day of the week by phoning Civic Offices security on 023 9282 2251.
To reclaim your dog if it has strayed
Dogs can be collected during normal opening hours subject to staff availability. We charge an initial payment for collection and kennelling of the dog, which will then increase per night that the dog remains in the kennels. This fee must be paid in cash before we release your dog to you.
- £58 for the first 24 hour period
- £22 for each additional day (or part day)
If a dog is not claimed after seven days, it can legally be re-homed. Kennel staff and volunteers work hard to prepare dogs for re-homing. If you are interested in re-homing a dog, email firstname.lastname@example.org or leave a message on the re-homing line 023 9268 8091.
