Lost & found pets

We are happy to help you spread the word on missing or found pets.

If you have lost or found a pet, you can post it to our facebook page or contact us – we will share your missing / found pets on facebook and twitter.

For LOST pets please try to include a photo, a description including name, breed, colour, distinctive marks, if your pet was wearing a collar or is microchipped, and where and when you last saw it.

For FOUND pets, we would advise that you do not post a photo, but a brief description (breed / basic colour) and where and when you found or spotted the animal. This will mean that any potential claimants can describv their pet more fully to you and you can be confident that the animal is theirs to claim!
