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 their owner.

 

Please note upon calling the dog warden you must make sure the dog is safely on a lead/contained as the dog warden will only attend if the stray dog is being kept securely.

If your cat has gone missing, here is some advice on what to do...

  • Contact local RSPCA branches and animal hospitals, we have a lost & found facebook page:  https://m.facebook.com/groups/248023575619209/
  • Check sheds, allotment buildings, barns, building sites, garages and attics.
  • Put up posters (with your cat's photograph on) and deliver leaflets to houses in neighbouring streets. 
  • Put adverts or notices in local newsagents, shops, local pubs, community centres, church halls.
  • Contact vet surgeries within a 20 mile radius of your home, as most of them will have a lost and found register.
  • Call animal rescue organisations within a 50 mile radius.
  • Write to local and free papers, enclosing a photograph of your cat.
