Coronavirus Update

If you find a stray dog please call us on 0345 6053010, we have a cut off time for the collection of stray dogs by our operatives of 2pm.

Stray dogs picked up will be taken to Manchester Dogs Home.

The Manchester Dogs Home are now closed to the general public, however if your dog is there they will allow people to collect.  Please call before you go so a time can be arranged for pick up - telephone number 0161 205 0347.

They are open for collection of stray dogs between 9 and 4.30 (but please ring first).

If you are self isolating and cannot arrange to collect your dog within the required 7 days, please let the Manchester Dogs Home know this and your dog will be held for you until you can arrange collection (some boarding fees maybe applicable, please ask the staff on duty when you phone).

We always try to return a found dog to its owner, but if we cannot identify or contact its owner the dog will be taken to  Manchester Dogs Home. telephone 0161 205 0347. We have a cut off time for collection of stray dogs by our operatives of 3pm.

Unclaimed stray dogs

We have a statutory duty to keep the dog in kennels for a period of seven days. If the dog is not claimed after this time, the owner loses all rights to it. The dog is then usually offered for re-homing.

If you find a stray dog which isn't claimed within 7 days, you may be able to keep it. The dog warden will contact you to discuss your legal obligations.
