Lost dogs

Uncollected dogs

By law, we must keep all stray dogs found in Lichfield District for at least seven days. After this time, the dog becomes the property of the council. 

If we cannot identify a dog, and if the owner has not come forward, we take it to City Dogs Home in Stoke-on-Trent, where every effort is made to find a new home for it.

If you can offer a home to a rescue dog, find out more by emailing City Dogs Home or by calling them on 01782 304130.
