Report lost and found dogs

Use our online form below to report lost or found dogs in the Lewes district or in Eastbourne. Please also read our guidance on responsible dog ownership.

If you find a stray dog, please do not bring the dog into the council buildings.

Do I need to do anything else after reporting a lost dog?

After sending us your lost dog report, remember to contact the other organisations who are involved in stray dog cases including:

  • Local vets
  • RSPCA: 01273 554218 (Patching rehoming centre)
  • Sussex Police: 101
  • Sussex pet rescue: 01273 551815
  • Neighbouring local authorities

What if I find my dog after reporting it lost?

If you report a lost dog to us but then find the dog, please let us know so that we can alert the kennel contractor.
