Stray dogs can cause many problems such as causing serious road accidents or biting a child, as well as being stressful for the owner of the lost dog.
Our kennels team assist the public by taking in or collecting stray dogs that are found in Portsmouth, they assess the dog’s condition and care for them in our modern kennels facility until contact with the owner can be made. Most of our dogs are successfully returned to their owners, but if no owner comes forward then we also work hard to re-home the dogs in our care.

If you have lost your dog call 023 9268 8181. Our dog kennels are at Great Salterns Farm on Burrfields Road, Portsmouth, PO3 5HH.
It is always best to call ahead, but if you would like to visit the kennels, please let kennel staff know well in advance, as due to the nature of the job they are not always in the office.

Outside of kennels opening hours, if you have found a dog or lost a dog in the Portsmouth area you can call the out of hours team on 02392824244. For all other matters please call the kennels staff during opening hours.
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.
Many of the dogs we take in need extensive rehabilitation and vet care. To keep our long-term residents warm and comfortable, we need your help.
