Stray Dogs

Stray dogs in Perthshire are generally collected by Perth & Kinross Council Dog Wardens and brought to us at PADS.

If you’ve found a dog in the Perth & Kinross council area please call us on 01764 684491 and leave a message to report, then please call PKC Dog Wardens on 01738 476476 during office hours – they will normally arrange to collect the dog from you.

If outside of office hours please call the Police on 101 and, if possible, please take the dog to the police station on Barrack Street in Perth, the dog will be kept in their kennels until their owner comes forward or until they are brought to us at PADS by the Dog Wardens the following working day.

If your dog is lost please report it to us on 01764 684491, to the council on 01738 476476 and to the Police on 101.

If your dog has been collected and brought to PADS

If your dog has been collected by the dog wardens and brought to PADS there will be a prescribed charge of £25.00 per dog from the Council plus we will then charge £9.00 per day or part of a day for the care of your dog.

This fine must be paid on collection by the owner with cash or cheque and guarantee card – we do not have a card facility. Please bring a form of ID with you when you collect your dog.

If your dog is not microchipped you can still claim your dog, you will be contacted by the Council upon collection who will give you a notice period of 21 days to have your dog chipped. If after the 21 day period your dog is still not microchipped a report will be sent to the procurator fiscal.

Dogs not claimed after 7 days will be deemed unwanted and will be rehomed by PADS.
