If you have seen a stray dog but were unable to or didn’t want to catch it, let us know and we will patrol the area to find it. You can use our online form below to let us know of any strays in your area.
If the dog seems dangerous or you’re worried it might injure someone you can call us on 01325 406999
If you have an clean blankets and towels you do not need, we can use them to make bedding for stray dogs to keep them warm when they are in our care. You can drop them off at our address at Central House Annex. Unfortunately we cannot accept duvets, sheets or clothing.
You can also make food donations at the same address or at ASDA on Whinbush Way, Wilkinsons on East Street or Sainsburys on Victoria Road. The food we collect will go to both Deerness kennels and Kings Church in Darlington to help people who have a dog and are finding it difficult to feed them.
