We can't respond to calls about healthy strays because we don't have enough money. Follow these steps to help get them back to their owner.
Check to see if the dog has a collar or tag with the owner's contact information on it. Only go near if you are calm.
If the dog is acting aggressively, stay away from it and call the local dog warden.
Tell the council about the lost dog. All local governments have a service called "dog warden."
Call your local vet to check for a microchip, as all dogs must have one by law.
Call local animal shelters and let them know about the lost dog.
Check local groups on social media and let people know you've found a dog. Tell people in your area.
Report the lost dog on Animal Search UK, which our inspectors only use.
