If your dog is chipped, contact the company with your chip number and advise them of the loss/theft.

Contact your local Dog Warden and give them a description, as much information as possible, and your contact details:

Daventry – 01327 302277
Kettering – 01536 534307
Corby – 01536 464052
East Northants – 01832 742068
Wellingborough – 01933 231960
Northampton – 01604 838000
South Northants – 01327 322323

Check with local kennels to see whether your dog has been handed in. It is generally better to visit the kennels in person, just in case they wouldn’t describe your dog the same way that you would!

Dogs not collected within 7 days are made available for re-homing.

“Ensuring that your dog has a collar/ID disc and a micro-chip assists the dog warden and members of the public to return your dog promptly and safely to you should it escape or wander off.

To prevent this from occurring you should however, ensure your premises are secure and that your dog is kept on a lead when in a public place.”
