Website maintenance

Due to essential maintenance some services on our website will not be available from 8am on Saturday 9 December to 7am on Monday 11 December. We apologise for any inconvenience.

Lost, found and dead animals

Our Street Cleansing team is responsible for removing dead domestic pets and larger wildlife such as deer, foxes and badgers from public land or highway, within 24 hours of being reported.

Smaller animals such as squirrels, rabbits or mice would normally only be dealt with by scheduled street cleansing.

Bodies of domestic pets will be taken to the Barn Animal Hospital in Lychpit where they will be scanned for a microchip. If a microchip is found, the owner will be contacted.

Dead pets are not collected from domestic properties as part of this service.

Report a dead animal

Lost and found domestic pets

We log all reports of dead domestic animals that are found. If you are missing a family pet and suspect that it may have been involved in an accident, please contact us.

We also log reports of lost and found domestic pets, so if your pet is missing you can report it to us. Details of where your pet was last seen and any distinguishing features will help us answer your query.
