|Stray dogs come to DEERNESS KENNELS from|
Darlington Borough Council and
Sedgefield, Durham, Easington, Chester-le-Street, Wear Valley Teesdale and Derwentside areas now known as
Durham County Council.
All dogs are kept here for seven clear days for their owners to collect.
If you have lost your dog in any of these areas please Tel 0191 3780439 to check if your dog is here at the kennels, your dog could have been picked up by the dog warden from your council.
Also check the link, stray dogs
on this site to see what the dog warden has brought into the kennels.
If you put a name disc on your dog or have it microchipped it is easier to trace you as the owner. In most areas of Durham County we can Microchip FREE here at the kennels or by the council dog warden. Remember to change your details if you move house or change your phone number.
A Microchip does not give you the right to let your dog stray.
Always maintain a collar and disc on your dog.
All strays will then be donated to
DEERNESS KENNELS RESCUE CENTRE
STRAY ACTION FOR DOGS.
Our Pledge is to keep all dogs not reclaimed by their owners (unless very aggressive to people) in a safe haven until we can rehouse them or find them a place of safety. If you think you can help any of these dogs
PLEASE do get in touch.
We have commited ourselves to a non-destruction policy.
The vet will then give the dog a health check, vaccinate, deflea, worm, microchip and neuter (or provide a voucher for this to be done).
Our Vet is Mr Kevin Walton of Vets 4 Pets at Framwellgatemoor Durham
He comes to the kennels 3 times a week to check the dogs Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday afternoons
A contribution is required.
We accept Cash, Credit, Debit Cards.
IF the dog is an older dog or it as been in Rescue for some time then any donation will be acceptable.
All dogs are Vaccinated, Neutered, De-flead,wormed and Microchipped with four weeks free insurance
