Report a Lost, Stray or Stolen Dog




*******  Public Notice *********

 The Dog Pound is now open to the Public


Reporting a lost/stray dog 

🐶 To report a lost or stray dog, call our dog wardens on 028 71253253 or email [email protected]

We can arrange to collect stray dogs or check to see if lost dogs have been picked up by our wardens and taken to our dog pound at Pennyburn Industrial Estate, Derry.

If you are collecting a lost or stray dog, please call in advance and bring photographic ID, your dog's licence number and the release fee.

If you are interested in rehoming an unclaimed stray dog please contact our dog wardens in the first instance as we may not have any dogs in our kennels. Dog Wardens will not be present at the dog shelter during the listed opening times if there are no dogs in the dog shelter as they will be carrying out other enforcement and education duties.

Opening times are:
Mon – Fri: 10.00am – 11.00am & 3.30pm – 4.30pm
Saturday: 11.00am-12.00pm

Kennelling charges for a stray dog is £16.00 for the first day plus £8.50 per day thereafter. 

Unwanted dogs: Please note that Council no longer accepts unwanted dogs.  If you have a dog and need it rehomed we recommend that you contact one of our two local animal rehoming charities: Pet FBI (Tel: 07512 280760) or Rainbow Rehoming Centre for Rescue Cats and Dogs (Tel: 028 71 812882).
