Valuation Office Scam

Be cautious about people claiming to be from the Valuation Office advising they can reduce your Council Tax band for a fee. Please refrain from disclosing personal information such as bank details

Stray and found dogs

Monday to Friday

To report a lost, found or stray dog during normal office hours (9am to 5pm) call Customer Services on 01664 502502  
Customer Services will maintain a register to try and reconnect owners and their dogs or contact the kennels who will collect the dog within 2 hours.

If your dog has been collected by the kennels then a charge will be made to cover the cost of recovery.  If your dog is microchipped it makes it easier for you to be reunited.

Unfortunately the dog warden cannot come out to search for a dog that is running loose, nor is the collection service available outside of the above hours.

Weekends

Between 9am and 5pm at the weekend if you capture a stray please call 07442 535012 for the kennels.

Dogs running loose 

Unfortunately the dog warden cannot come out to search for a dog that is running loose.

Captured dogs 

If your dog is captured it will be taken to College Garth Kennels, Hathern and there is a fee payable for collection.  Please note that if you wish to collect your dog at the weekend or on a bank holiday then this is by appointment only with the kennels.

Unfortunately we cannot pick up dogs that are running loose, only those that have been captured.

Other ways to find your dog

You may also want to use social media to try and find your dog.  Use twitter and Facebook to let people know you are looking.
