Stray Dogs

The Police do not deal with stray dogs. Please report stray dogs to your local council. Hertfordshire County Council's website can be found by clicking Web Link here.


New legislation came into force nationally in April 2008 that gave responsibility for stray dogs to the local authority.


If someone reports that they have either lost or found a dog, Hertfordshire Police will pass on the phone number of the relevant local authority.
