Lost your Dog?
We are only able to show a small selection of the many dogs available for rehoming, and the information provided on each dog is for guideline purposes only. For more information on each dog, or to view all the dogs available for adoption, please visit our rehoming centres directly.
I have lost my dog, what do I do now?
It is important to stress that law only requires us to house a dog for seven days before we can legally re-home him. Due to this, it is vitally important that you make weekly visits to our homes' to see if he has been handed in.
- Report it to your local animal warden. Your local authority should employ an animal warden who will collect any stray dogs wandering the streets.
- Make a report to your local animal rescue centre. Most shelters keep a lost and found database of their own.
- Call your local veterinary surgery in case a member of the public has handed your dog to them or has notified them of a stray they have found.
- If your dog is micro-chipped, contact the organisation that it is registered with to advise them that your pet is lost and ensure that all your details are fully up to date so that you can be contacted should your dog be found.
- Ask local shops, vets, pubs etc to display the posters and put them up in the area where your pet went missing. You could even post copies of the poster through doors in the streets around your home.
