What to do if you have lost your dog
If you lose a dog in East Northamptonshire please call 01832 742000 to report it. We will record the details of the dog and check if it looks like one that we have collected or a stray that has been reported to us. Alternatively you could complete the report lost/found dogs form with as much information as you can. If you get your dog back please contact us so we can update our records.
What to do if the council has collected your dog
When we collect a dog it is taken to our contracted kennels.
You will need to contact East Northamptonshire Council to arrange an appointment to collect your dog from the kennels. Before collection you will have to pay a straying fine along with a kenneling charge for every day (or part day) they have the dog. If the dog is not microchipped you will also have to pay for this to be done before the dog can be collected.
Out of hours
If you have lost a dog outside of office hours please call 01832 733530.
Depending on where you have lost your dog it may be worth calling some of our neighbouring councils in case one of them has collected your dog. This map shows the boundary of East Northamptonshire and nearby council areas (PDF 3.39MB).
