Lost dogs

If you have lost your dog you can contact St Giles Kennels on 01823 490333 to see if it’s been taken there.

If your dog has been taken to the kennels it will stay in there for seven clear days. You can reclaim it between 10am to 1pm and 2pm to 5pm seven days a week with the exception of Christmas Day, Boxing Day, New Year’s Day and Easter Sunday. After seven clear days if the dog is not claimed, we will own the dog and will usually re-home it.

Laws and regulation

It is an offence under The Control of Dogs Order 1992 for a dog to be in a public place without a collar and tag bearing the name and address of its owners.

Under the Microchipping of Dogs (England) Regulations 2015 all dogs in England over the age of eight weeks must, by law, be fitted with microchips. More details on microchipping can be found on
