If you find a dead animal on the highway or any public land we can arrange removal. We can collect many types of animals ranging from cats and dogs to ducks and foxes.

If it is likely to be a family pet then it is taken to a local veterinary surgery where it is kept for a period of seven days in case the owner comes forward. Any other animal is disposed of by the Environmental Services Team.

We will aim to collect the animal within 24 hours.
