First check whether the pet has an ID tag with contact details on. If it does, try contacting the owner / keeper.
If you have access, or wish to request access to our secure online services where you can look up details held against a microchip, please create or log in to your Petlog Account (only available to authorised agents with pin numbers already supplied by microchip providers).
What to do when a pet has been handed in to you as lost or a stray:
Scan the pet for a microchip number.
If the pet has a microchip use the Look Up a Microchip tool see what database the pet is recorded on.
If the pet is recorded on the Petlog database you can either log in to your Petlog Account and perform an extended look up (Animal Professionals only, including Veterinary Organisations, Local Authorities, Police and Animal Welfare).
Report the pet as missing and try to contact the owner using the contact details provided.
If you do not have an account contact Petlog on the dedicated found line 0870 606 6751. Please ensure that you have your authorised vet / pin code to hand for security validation purposes as well as the pet's microchip number to hand.
Petlog will ask you, if the reunification is successful, to ask the owner to contact Petlog once they have their pet back so that we can record that their pet is back safely with them and to ensure that their details are kept up-to-date.
