Found a Dog

Arrangements for stray dogs now rest with your local council, please call them to arrange for the dog to be collected.

This Charity has not been a receiving point for stray dogs since March 2015. Oak Tree cannot by law accept a dog you have found and we cannot take in dogs brought in to our reception.

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.
