What do I do if I have found a pet?

First check whether the pet has an identification tag with contact details on. If it does, try contacting the owner / keeper.

If not, please take the lost pet straight to a local vet, welfare centre or contact your local animal warden. This will be the quickest and easiest way to find the owner. They will be able to scan the pet for a microchip number and contact the owners.

Local authorities have responsibility for dealing with stray dogs and they are required to employ dog wardens to collect any dog believed to be a stray. To find your local animal warden, please click here.

If the animal is microchipped, the dog warden service will have access to the Petlog database and will search for the details so that they can return the pet to its rightful owner as soon as possible.

The Environment Protection Act 1990 requires the finder of a stray dog to return the dog to its owner, or contact the local authority (dog warden service) to report it and have it collected.

You may also wish to read the full FAQs before contacting us due to high interest in calls due to compulsory microchipping.  We are sorry for any inconvenience potentially incurred.
