The Animal Warden deals with reports of lost and stray dogs. 

Lost dog

If you have lost your dog, please contact us to report this and give your details:

  • Monday - Fridays 09:00:am - 17:00pm - Tel: 01443 425001
  • Weekdays after 17:00 and all day on weekends and Bank Holidays - Tel: 01443 425011

If we find a lost dog or have reports of sightings we will contact you.

In addition you can view  www.hoperescue.org.uk and the Hope and Rescue facebook page where pictures of lost dogs are posted.

You may also want to share details of a missing or found dog on community services such as  Lost and Found RCT, which are run by volunteers via social media and receive lots of reports of lost, found and sighted dogs.

Please note: We do not respond to lost or stray cats.

Stray Dog

If you find a stray dog you can contact us to report this:

  • Monday - Fridays 09:00:am - 17:00pm - Tel: 01443 425001
  • Weekdays after 17:00 and all day on weekends and Bank Holidays - Tel: 01443 425011

Stray dogs will now be kept at:

Hope Rescue Kennels

Cynllan Lodge, 
Old Llanharry Road, 
Llanharan, CF72 9NH 

SATNAV use CF72 9RA

Animal Wardens will try to trace the owners and return the dog. Microchips will be checked and the appropriate fee charged if the dog is reclaimed.

If the dog found is not micro-chipped, an additional cost will be added to cover the cost of micro-chipping.

Stray dogs will be kept safely for up to seven days at Hope Rescue kennels or returned in line with the appropriate kennelling charge below.

After seven days, the Council’s responsibility for the dog will cease and Hope Rescue will seek to re-home the dog, if possible.

The kennels are open:

  • Monday- Friday: 9.00am to 5pm
  • Arrangements for collection of dogs outside normal working hours are detailed below:

Dogs will only be returned to their owners after payment for kennel charges are made in full. If you want to check if your dog has been detained at the kennels, you can contact Hope Rescue directly on 01443 226659.
