IF YOU’VE FOUND A DOG OR CAT
Please contact the Shelter. Someone may already have reported it missing. Also look out for advertisements in your local shops and the newspaper.
If you have found a dog or cat and would like to keep it you are entitled to do so as long as you have reported your find. If it is not claimed within 28 days it becomes your legal property.
The Shelter will take a lost or found report from you but if you have lost or found a stray dog you must contact your local dog warden service (they collect stray dogs)
