What happens if I find a stray or injured dog?
As mentioned above, if the dog has a ‘Charter Vets’ pet tag on its collar, we will take it in and keep it at one of our hospitals for up to seven days whilst making every attempt to reunite the dog with its owner.
If the dog does not have a Charter Vets pet tag on its collar, your first port of call is:
