Advice for Finders of Lost or Stray Dogs
The regulations state that: any unattended dog on public land, or any unattended dog on private land where it is not permitted to be, is considered to be a stray dog.
All dogs are required by law to wear a collar with the name and address of the owner inscribed on the collar or on a plate or badge attached to it. If you take possession of a stray dog it is very likely that you will be able to identify the dog and the owner from its collar ID.
Under Section 149 of the Environmental Protection Act 1990, Basildon Council is the local authority responsible for taking in stray dogs found anywhere within the boundaries of Basildon Borough.
