What to do if you find a Stray DogĀ 
Dogs that are stray and running wild can be a hazard. When a stray dog is found, it is important to take action quickly to stop the dog from hurting himself or causing traffic accidents.

Reporting a Stray Dog
If a stray dog is found, the first thing to do is to report it to the proper authorities. A stray dog can be reported to the police. When reporting a stray dog the following information is required:

The contact details of the person finding the dog. This includes name, address, telephone number and email address.
A description of the dog. This should include the type or breed of dog, its colour and size, approximate age and any features that might help to identify it.
The time and date when the dog was found
Where the dog was found
Where the dog currently is and where it can be collected from
Other important information such as whether the dog is injured or ill
People finding a dog need simply to enter their postal code and the relevant contact information will be provided.

Getting a Stray Dog into Secure Space
A friendly dog may be quite happy to be led into a safe and secure environment such as a garden. He may be encouraged with a few tasty tidbits or morsels of food. This will stop the dog from wandering further and will make it easier for the authorities to find him. If the dog is friendly, then this is also a good opportunity to check him for any identification. This includes whether he has a name tag on his collar or other means of identification.
