Lost and stray dogs
During the coronavirus pandemic the response from the dog warden may take longer than usual. Wallace Kennels are continuing to accept dogs, however please telephone them beforehand and under no circumstances should you go to the kennels if you are unwell or experiencing COVID-19 symptoms.
The dog warden continues to collect stray dogs.
Dog owners have a responsibility under the Animals Act 1971 to prevent their dogs from straying or causing injury or damage.
Local councils are legally responsible for taking in stray dogs under the Environmental Protection Act 1990. They must provide suitable kennels and dogs are kept for a minimum of seven days before the possibility of them being re-homed.
