Dog Control (Lost, Stray or Fouling Dogs)
Dog control services in Nottingham
Report a Stray Dog
We operate 7 days a week.
Monday to Friday 9am to 9pm.
Weekends and Bank holidays 9am to 4pm.
Any reports of a stray dog received outside of these hours will not be picked up until a dog warden returns to duty the following day.
If a dog is picked up and it is wearing a collar or is microchipped with correct owner details, we will make every effort to return the dog to its owner, a Fixed Penalty Notice will normally be issued.
If the dog is picked up on more than one occasion or cannot be identified, it will be taken to our kennels.
The owner will then have to pay a charge, currently £25.00, together with kennelling and veterinary costs before the dog is returned.
If a dog is not collected by the owner within 7 days of being seized then Nottingham City will legally assume ownership of that dog. The majority of the strays that are left unclaimed are re-homed but in certain circumstances they do have to be put to sleep.
NB Cash payments and cheques are not accepted.

Re homing Strays
Castlefield Kennels is our contracted re-homing kennel.
The Dog Control or Community Protection Officers carry out the first visits when there is a complaint about a barking dog and they can offer advice to dog owners to help them to live peacefully with their neighbours.
