Lost dogs

If we find a stray dog unattended, without identification, we will take it to Treetop Kennels.

The dog's owner will need to pay to get the dog back. Charges increase daily to a maximum of seven days.

If the dog is not collected within seven days,  Treetops will try to re-home it.

If you have lost your dog please report it to us, with a full description of the dog and the time and place it was lost.
