If you lose your dog or believe it to be stolen please contact them to find out if they have your dog. Give them as much information as you can. The details you should pass on should include the following:
If you closely border other council areas, it will also be worth contacting the neighbouring authorities. Ask which kennels the dog wardens use to house stray dogs.
Reuniting seized dogs with their owners
On collection of your dog from City Dogs Home you will be required to pay all kennel costs along with a fee of £25.00 payable on collection. Dogs are kennelled at the kennels for 7 days. If dogs are not collected by their owners they are offered for re-homing after the 7 day period.
You could also consider the following things to find your pet:
Contact the police for the area in which you lost your dog or cat
Contact local pet shops
Contact grooming parlours
Contact local animal rescue organisations
Contact animal hospitals
Check ‘found’ ads in local papers
Place adverts in local newspapers
Post printed notes through neighbours’ doors
Ask local shops and businesses to put posters in
Look in your local Yellow Pages for the contact details of local vets, and phone through your missing dog and cat report. Once again, the more information you can provide, the better, as it will increase your chances of finding your pet quickly. Most vets keep a ‘lost and found’ book, and may also allow you to put up posters in the practices most local to you.
