Found a Dog
The Charity has not been a receiving point for stray dogs since March 2015.
The following numbers are available as a PDF download.
Arrangements for stray dogs now rest with your local councils in Cumbria - please call them to arrange for the dog to be collected. This is a legal duty which every local council must provide for.

The charity cannot by law accept a dog you have found and we cannot take in dogs brought in to our reception at weekends - stray dog collection outside office hours remains the responsibility of the local authority.
Please remain with the dog and wait for the out of hours provision from your local council.
