Surrenders, Lost or Stray Animals

All animals that come to our shelter, whether they are stray or lost are checked for identification. If the owners can be identified they will be contacted.

In the unfortunate event of not being able to identify the owner, the animal will be held for a maximum of 3 days, after which they will then become the property of the RSPCA.

Once the animal becomes the property of the RSPCA, they are assessed for their suitability to be re-homed.

In the unfortunate event of your animal going missing, be sure to contact your local dog control officer, the local police station and your local shelter.

Animals that are properly fitted with identification are more likely to be re-united with their owners.

Microchipping is the best way to ensure your pet can be easily identified, but other measures include registration tags, identification tattoo or a tag fitted to the animal’s collar with your details inscribed on it.
