Found Dogs

These dogs, pictured below, are in the care of the local council. Dogs shown in this section have been found straying by a dog warden or a concerned member of the public. Your dog has been brought to the County Pound at Coxhoe because:

  • It was out unaccompanied, not wearing an identity disc (which is required under the Environmental Protection Act 1990), or
  • It was not possible for the finder to contact you on the details available at the time, or
  • Your dog has been collected as a stray before
PLEASE NOTE, HAVING YOUR PET MICROCHIPPED DOES NOT GIVE IT THE RIGHT TO STRAY.
 
 All dogs brought to the charity’s kennels are photographed on arrival and given a unique reference number. Please use this number when contacting the charity.

 They are checked for any obvious injuries and held by Stray Aid on behalf of the council for at least 7 days. During this time we will attempt to find the owner of the dog. An owner should collect his dog from the council’s facility as soon as possible. The kennels are open every day between 10am and 4pm for rehoming of dogs. Although the council and the charity will try to locate the owner no responsibility will be accepted if the dog is not collected during this period.

 The council operates a non-destruct policy and in accordance with the Environmental Protection Act 1990 all dogs seized as strays by the council will become the property of the council after they have been kept for a mandatory period of 7 days and remain unclaimed by the owner. The dog will be rehomed on behalf of the council by the charity and the previous owner will have no legal claim to it. Any proceeds from the sale of this dog will be used by the charity to subsidise the service provided to the public on behalf of the council. Stray Aid makes every effort to rehome as many dogs as possible and will not destroy a rehomeable dog.

 If you believe you are the owner of one of these dogs, please contact the charity on 0300 9994247, quote the dog’s unique reference number and leave your contact details. To assist us in returning your dog, please bring with you any proof of ownership you may have ie. pedigree papers, receipt for purchase, vaccination or vet record, microchip details, photograph etc. Please also bring with you one proof of your identity ie passport, driving licence etc. together with one proof of your address ie rent book, utility bill, bank letter etc.

 The following charges will be made and have to be paid in full, in cash, together with any veterinary fees incurred during your dog’s stay before the dog can be returned to the owner:

  • 0-1 day: £25 mandatory council fine + 1 x £7.00 kennel fee                Total fee: £32.00
  • 2 dates: £25 mandatory council fine + 2 x £7.00 kennel fee                Total fee: £39.00
  • 3 dates: £25 mandatory council fine + 3 x £7.00 kennel fee                Total fee: £46.00
  • 4 dates: £25 mandatory council fine + 4 x £7.00 kennel fee                Total fee: £53.00
  • 5 dates: £25 mandatory council fine + 5 x £7.00 kennel fee                Total fee: £60.00
  • 6 dates: £25 mandatory council fine + 6 x £7.00 kennel fee                Total fee: £67.00
  • 7 dates: £25 mandatory council fine + 7 x £7.00 kennel fee                Total fee: £74.00

 Please note we do not accept credit or debit cards, and no longer accept cheques.

If you feel that the fine has not been applied correctly by the charity, and you wish to appeal against the council fine, please contact Dave Riseley, Education and Enforcement Manager, Durham County Council on 03000 260000, or Helen Beaman, Team Leader, Waste and Environmental Services, Hartlepool Council on 01429 523358.

 Upon collection of your dog it will be entitled to the following:

  • Free neutering, supported by Dogs Trust
  • Free microchipping, supported by Dogs Trust
  • The above services are only available to be done by the charity free of charge at the Stray Aid Rescue and Rehoming Centre, Coxhoe. You are welcome to make a donation towards supporting the work of the charity.

 NB. It is an offence under the Control of Dogs Order 1992 for a dog to be in a public place without a collar and tag with the owner’s name and address on it, even when the owner is in charge of the dog. If your dog does not have a collar and tag, you can be prosecuted and fined up to £5000. The owner commits this offence even if the dog has a microchip.
