Report a dead animal

We can collect an animal that has died, and is on the:

  • roadside

Once we have collected an animal we arrange for it's disposal.

You can report a dead animal using our online report form. You can now track the progress of your report through registering for our MyAccount service.

To report a dead animal you'll need:

Report a dead animal

Once we have received a report, we aim to collect the animal within two working days.

Dead dogs and cats that are reported and collected are scanned for microchip information, and we'll try to contact the registered owner.
