Lost dogs

To help us find your lost dog call us on 01622 602117.

Your dog may have been found by a member of the public who contacted us or may have taken it to a veterinary surgery.

If we have collected your dog we'll have taken it to a safe place. If your dog is being held at our nominated holding kennel you may need to pay costs to release them.
