If you have lost your dog

You can include a photograph of your dog with your post to this forum. Instructions here...


1. Your local Dog Warden - link to the NDWA

2. The local pounds

3. All the vets in your area http://www.vetlist.co.uk/

4. As many internet sites as you can

5. Your local press

6. Local Shops - ask if you can put up posters etc.

7. All your local rescues

8. Local Taxi companies as their drivers are always out and about (thanks to Iluvgsds for this tip)

8. The local Highways or your Local Authority's Refuse Department (in case of a road traffic accident)

9. Visit your Local Authority's (LA) and neighbouring LA's web sites as many who still employ their own dog wardens now list found dogs along with their photographs.

10. Ask your local postmen, milkmen, street cleaners, bin men, and taxi drivers if they have seen your dog or if they could keep an eye out for him/her.

11. Contact Network Rail who will notify you or tell you if sadly your dog is picked up after a being hit by a train:Network Rail 08457 114141 (24 hour service).

12. If you have lost a dog in the Greater Manchester area and beyond contact the Manchester Dogs Home:
Manchester Dogs Home

If you've lost a cat or dog within the M25 area of London then Battersea Dogs Home have a Lost Cat or Dog Line open every day, 8am to 8pm.

Details here. Strays from most of London area are brought to Battersea.

Birmingham Dogs Home telephone number is 0121 643 5211.

If you have found a dog

Contact all the above!

Local authorities have responsibility for stray dogs. If someone loses or finds a dog they should always contact the local authority first. This increases the chances of the animal and its owner being quickly reunited

If you wish to keep the found dog, or to surrender the dog to a local rescue for rehoming, rather than the kennels which have your local authority's stray dog contract, the following is REALLY important:

The Environmental Protection Act 1990 Sec 150 requires the finder of a stray dog to:

return the dog to its owner; or
contact the local authority for the area in which the dog was found

If the finder fails to take one of these courses of action, he will have committed an offence and would be liable, upon conviction, to a fine.

If the finder requests to keep the dog, he must supply the officer with his contact details and details of the dog. The officer is required to keep a record of these details.

Regulations require that the officer makes appropriate enquiries to ascertain that the finder is a suitable person to keep the dog. The finder must then be informed verbally and in writing that he is obliged to keep the dog (if unclaimed by the owner) for not less than one month and that failure to comply with that obligation is a criminal offence.

As soon as the dog you post about in this forum has been found or reunited with its owner, please notify one of the mods by PM asking for the thread to be closed.

You will need to include the link to your thread when you send your PM.

To get the link, go to your thread and open it and then copy the information in the address bar at the top of your screen and then paste this into the PM smile.gif

(Please note that the mods names can be found under the forum titles in the main forum list. Click on whichever name you choose and then click on send a PM).

If using Photobucket:

*** Photobuck has changed its appearance, and added more features for your photo editing ***

Important: Photos should sized to give a file size of around 30k - 50k please. Please try make sure they aren't taller or wider than about 500 pixels. This will enable those members without broadband on a slow dial-up internet to access the photos at a reasonable speed.

Below is a step by step guide on how to size and upload your photos. You can test your photo postings HERE.
* * * * * * * * * * * * * * *


It's easy! First of all go to http://www.photobucket.com . Its free to register and free to use.

Click the "BROWSE" option, which will open your computer photo files. When you have found the photo you want to upload, click it once, and a square will surround the photo. Click "OPEN" on the computer screen showing all your photos. The photo title will automatically show in the "BROWSE" box. You can then repeat the action several times if you have more than one photo to upload. When you have chosen all the photos you want to upload, click "UPLOAD" under the photos you have picked. (Its a blue button)

You have uploaded your photo! This is how it will appear on the Photobucket account.


To reduce the photo to the correct size for the Photo Show, click "EDIT" above the photo.


From the drop down menu, click "RESIZE". It will take a few moments for the editing suite to open.

Click the size that says "WEBSITE 320 X 240"


Photobucket will resize your photo to the correct size. smile.gif

When you return to your album, there will be a choice of links that you can use underneath that photo. You need to copy (right click the mouse, scroll down, and click 'copy') the "IMG code'.


To put your photo onto a topic, click "REPLY" to the last post in that section, or if starting a new topic, click 'new topic' and a new page will appear. All you need to do is Right click your mouse, and scroll down the menu to 'paste' Your photo will be automatically ready for posting. smile.gif

You then click "Add Reply" or 'Post new topic' as you would normally. smile.gif

If you find you picture is too big when posted, it means you did not resize correctly. There's a very easy way of resizing when a picture has already been uploaded to Photobucket. Using the same photo already on Photobucket, and resize again as required. smile.gif You might need to "Refresh" your Photobucket page. It will automatically resize the photo showing on Dogpages. smile.gif

There is also this help link Posting Photos

If you have lost your dog you may wish to contact not only your own dog warden but also those in surrounding areas as it is not unheard of for a finder to drive home , ie out of your area, and then hand in the dog.
