Every stray dog collected is checked to see if it has any identification tags. If the dog does have an identification tag, we will confirm that the details are correct by contacting the owner to advise we have the dog and to organise its return.
If a dog does not have an identification tag, it will be taken to a kennel and kept there for 7 days or until the owner comes forward. If the owner has not made contact within 7 days, the dog will be re-homed where possible.
Please visit our Dog Warden Services pages for more information regarding dogs in the Borough.
