Anyone losing or finding a dog in South Gloucestershire should ring the council helpdesk AS SOON AS POSSIBLE on 01454 868000. Outside office hours please ring the out of hours number 07971 682292.
Dogs found in Bristol must be taken to Bristol Dogs' Home (0117 977 6043, out of hours 07792 028235, Bristol City Council 0117 9222500).
If you have lost your dog please register him/her on Doglost and let your microchip company know that s/he is missing. Microchipping is now a legal requirement, as is keeping your details updated. FOSS often offers free microchipping at our events.
It is also a legal requirement for your dog to wear an ID tag - this is by far the quickest way to be reunited with your missing dog! It is against the law to keep a found dog without informing the Local Authority.
