Missing and Stray Dogs

Stray Dogs

Stray dogs are dogs that are in a public place and are not accompanied by the owner or a responsible person. Dogs that are not under proper control are also considered stray dogs. Stray dogs should be reported to the Dog Warden. You can receive an on-the-spot fine if your dog is not under proper control.

Stray dogs may be seized by the dog warden and the Gardai. These dogs may be rehomed or disposed of if their owners do not claim them within 5 days from the Dog Pound.
