Cheltenham Borough Council no longer have a dedicated stray dog service, this is now provided externally by Worcestershire Regulatory Services.

Please call Worcestershire Regulatory Services (WRS) on 01905 822799 if you would like to report a stray dog or if you have lost your dog.

During out of office hours, please phone the council’s out of hours service on 07887 797784 (5pm to 9am Monday to Friday, during weekends and on Bank Holidays).

If you have lost your dog WRS will be able to let you know if your dog is in their kennels and the payment you owe. Once you have made a payment, you will be given a unique reference (receipt) number to present at the kennels when collecting your dog.  You will also be told the location of the kennels and the opening hours for collection.

Please be aware that the Worcestershire authorities will charge £25.00 on top of all other charges when the dog is identified as seized on more than one occasion.

Please note - You will not be able to collect your dog unless payment has been made in advance.
