Stray Dogs & Missing Cats

Stray dogs 

If you find a stray dog that does not have a collar with an ID tag, then you can take it to a local vet who will scan it to check whether it has as microchip.

If the dog is not microchipped, then you will need to contact the local council who will arrange for a dog warden to collect the dog from you and take it to a boarding kennels, while they try to locate the owner.
