Stray, roaming or lost dogs

The Dog Warden helps keep stray/roaming dogs away from our streets and open spaces, and will return them to their home, wherever possible. Micro-chipping your dog helps us contact you as quickly as possible and gives you peace of mind.

Hilbrae Kennels will collect and care for stray dogs until their owners can be located. Hilbrae Kennels can only collect dogs which have already been caught and contained.

Please note: charges will apply for collection, kennelling and any veterinary treatment (if applicable), a reduced fee will apply if your dog has an up to date micro-chip:

  • £40 for a dog not chipped or chip is out of date
  • £35 for a dog that is chipped with accurate information
  • the cost of any kennelling fees (visit Hilbrae website for further information)
  • the cost of any veterinary treatment where applicable.
