Braintree District Council

Stray & lost dogs

Report a stray dog

If you find a stray dog you can report it to us by contacting us on 01376 552525. If you find a dog out of office hours, please contact us on the same numer and leave your details and you will receive a call back as soon as possible.

Any strays seized by the Local Authoriity will be held for 7 days and if not claimed after these days, will become the property of the Local Authority. 

 On Sundays and Bank Holidays stray dogs can be registered with the council but we will be unable to take them in. A local vet may be prepared to accept a stray dog and/or check them  for a microchip.   

If you lose your dog

If you lose your dog in the District please complete the online form and we can let you know if the dog is found. If you later find your dog please let us know.
