Found dogs

What to do if you have found a dog

Telephone: 0300 123 7038 (telephone only to avoid delay)

Please provide a description of the dog including as much information as possible:

  • breed (if known)
  • colour
  • gender
  • collar or tag

You will need to keep the dog secured until the dog warden arrives.

We will also ask if you are willing to give your contact details to us. The reason for this is if someone has reported a lost dog, the description may match the dog you have. So we need to make sure that you are happy for us to give your contact details to them to arrange for them to collect it. 

What happens next

We will contact the dog warden to come and collect the dog from you.

Where to find help

  • You can call the RSPCA cruelty line on 0300 1234 999 (24 hour service).
  • Any dangerous dogs should be reported to Cheshire Police by telephone on 101.
