Stray dogs

Owning a dog is a lifelong responsibility for the owner to ensure that the dog is not a hazard, a health risk, or a nuisance to other members of our society.

We receive many complaints each year on issues such as dog fouling and uncontrolled dogs.

The following organisations can provide help: 

  • for issues of possible animal cruelty, contact the RSPCA
  • if the dog is dangerous or has injured you, contact the Police

The RSPCA gives information about animal cruelty issues.

Stray Aid gives provides general information about dog ownership and the law.

Visit Street care and cleaning to report if your street needs cleaning due to dog fouling or if you want to report evidence of dog fouling.
