What to do if you find a Stray Dog
Dogs that are stray and running wild can be a hazard. When a stray dog is found, it is important to take action quickly to stop the dog from hurting themselves or causing traffic accidents.
Reporting a Stray Dog
If a stray dog is found, the first thing to do is to report it to the proper authorities. A stray dog can be reported to the Dog Warden. You can reach them by telephoning Hull City Council on 01482 300 300. When reporting a stray dog the following information is required:
The contact details of the person finding the dog. This includes name, address, telephone number and email address.
A description of the dog. This should include the type or breed of dog, its colour and size, approximate age and any features that might help to identify it.
The time and date when the dog was found.
Where the dog was found.
Where the dog currently is and where it can be collected from.
Other important information such as whether the dog is injured or ill.
Getting a Stray Dog into Secure Space
A friendly dog may be quite happy to be led into a safe and secure environment such as a garden. This will stop the dog from wandering further and will make it easier for the authorities to find them. If the dog is friendly, then this is also a good opportunity to check them for any identification. This includes whether they have a name tag on their collar or other means of identification.
