Lost a dog

Oak Tree Animals’ Charity has not been a receiving point for stray dogs since March 2015 and we are no longer the dog wardens, so if you lose your dog, it is likely to end up in the care of local district and city councils in Cumbria.

Remember to check with neighbours and use social media to see if anyone has seen your dog. It is a good idea to have a photo of the dog in digital form which you can easily send or post. Please remember that it is the law to have your dog microchipped, and the details up to date. If the dog is chipped and collected, it will be easily found.

Please contact your local council to see if your dog has been handed in:
