Lost, found and stray dogs

If you see a dog that is out of control, or you feel threatened by a dog or dog owner, call the police on 101. If it is an emergency, always call 999.

If you have lost your dog, or find a stray dog, please report it to us straight away.

Report a lost/found or stray dog

You will need to give us as much detail as possible, including the breed, sex, age and location/time last seen/found. It is also helpful if you can supply a photograph.

In recent years, we have found that lots of people also use Facebook and other social media to alert the community they have lost a dog. This increases the number of people who will look for it, and often results in a swift return to the owner.

We do not offer a 24 hour lost dog response service via our online form.
