What happens next?

On payment of the appropriate fee, we will contact the kennels to let them know that you have paid and that you are on your way to collect your dog. You will need to collect your dog as soon as possible.

On arrival at the kennels, you will need to produce personal identification with address and if your dog’s microchip details are not up to date, proof of ownership.

Types of proof of ownership

  • Kennel club registration certificates
  • Veterinary papers
  • Pet insurance papers

Accepted types of ID and proof of address

  • Driving license or passport
  • Council tax or utility bill
  • Bank statement

Microchip identification

You are responsible for microchipping your dog and for keeping the microchip information up to date. Currently the holding kennels will chip all found dogs free of charge before they are returned to their owners.

We are very proactive and successful at returning microchipped dogs to their owners.
