It is an offence to allow your dog to stray, or to take possession of a stray dog without reporting it.
Stray dogs can be reported to Environmental Health by phoning 01259 450000 Monday to Friday 9-5 with the following information:
Out with these times, you should call Police Scotland on 101.
You can take a stray dog to a designated police office, if it is safe to do so. Please note the only designated police offices for receiving stray dogs are Falkirk, Stirling and Alloa.
All stray dogs found within the Stirling, Falkirk and Clackmannanshire areas are kept at Bandeath Dog Shelter, a central facility managed by Stirling Council on behalf of Clackmannanshire, Falkirk and Stirling Councils.
There is a daily charge you must pay to recover your dog from Bandeath from the day it is accepted, which must be paid to Stirling Council before you can collect your dog. You must also provide proof of identity when collecting your dog such as a driving licence, passport, credit card etc.
To check if your dog is at Bandeath please phone 01786 404040 with the following information:
After 7 days any unclaimed dogs become the property of Stirling Council.
The police use their own facilities and enquiries about any lost dog must be made separately to them by phoning 101.
The police do not share this information with us and so we are unable to advise on dogs they may have.
