Lost and Found Pets

Lost Pets

If your pet has gone missing there are a few simple but important things to do.

    1. Talk with your neighbours and ask them to check garages and sheds.
    2. If your pet is micro-chipped make sure that you have your mobile phone switched on and there is someone at home to answer any calls.
    3. Check with all the local vet surgeries. Any injured stray animals are usually taken to a vet surgery. Facebook pages are often used by surgeries to showcase found animals. The local ones to consider are…
      • Portland Vets EG – 01342 327799
      • Portland Vets Edenbridge – 01732 868680
      • East Grinstead Veterinary Hospital – 01342 323072
      • Medivet Forest Row – 01342 824452
      • Blackberry Dormansland – 01342 870972
    4. Call Dog Control on 01444 477041
    5. If your dog is lost on the forest call the forest warden 01342 822846
    6. When your pet returns home please ensure their microchip is reading – ie getit checked!  It is now a legal requirement in the UK to have your dog microchipped. Although not compulsory in cats, a simple chip costing £20.00 can save a lot of heartache and distress.
    7. If your pet has been missing for a few days it is also worth contacting the local rescue charities as they may have been taken there – click here for local animal charities

If you have any information about missing animals please contact the surgery

Found Pets

If you have found a stray pet please contact the surgery so that it can be scanned for a microchip and hopefully be reunited with its owner!
