    Q249: I have found a dog, what do I do?

    You should call the local dog warden. The local authority dog warden has a responsibility to collect all stray dogs that are found in a public place.

    Stray dogs can also be taken to a police office but not all of them have kennels so it would be worth enquiring with them before handing a dog in. This process is under review but this procedure is still ongoing.

    The SSPCA will not go out and collect stray dogs.
