What should I do if I find a lost pet?

Pet is wearing a tag

  • If the pet is wearing a tag belonging to a pet register such as the National Pet Register, call the number on the tag and quote the unique ID number on the tag
  • If the pet is wearing another tag, call the number written on the tag. It may be the telephone number of the owner.

Pet is not wearing a tag
If the pet is not wearing a tag, call or visit one of the following:

  • Your local council to report the lost pet
  • Your local pound or shelter
  • Your local vet to see if the pet has a microchip.
