Lost and stray dogs
How to report a stray dog
The council is legally obliged to deal with stray dogs under the Environmental Protection Act 1990.
Complaints about straying dogs will be dealt with as soon as possible, depending on the availability of the Dog Warden. Consequently, it will not always be possible to respond to such complaints quickly enough to catch the dog. In such cases, and if the dog concerned strays regularly, the Dog Warden will attempt to visit the area another day when the dog may again be straying.
Complaints about dogs should be made to our Contact Centre on 01827 715341. Our opening hours are 8.30- 5:15pm Monday to Friday.
Out of hours service
We operate a limited out of hour service for dogs found in North Warwickshire ONLY. This is a drop off point ONLY at Ninestones Kennels, Wishaw Lane, Curdworth, Sutton Coldfield, B76 9EA. Please telephone in advance 01675 470274 between the hours of 5:15pm and 7:00pm Monday - Friday. 9:00am - 7:00pm Saturday, Sunday and Bank Holidays.
Please note that our kennels do not collect dogs, they will only accept those taken to their premises.
Should you find a dog out of these hours please notify our emergency out of hours 01827 718086. You will be advised to keep the dog until the next working day when the Dog Warden will be notified and will make arrangements with you for collection.
