Lost & Found


We list lost and found pets on our facebook page.

If you don't have facebook you can email the animal's details to:  
contactus@rspca-wigan.co.uk If you would like to feature a lost or found animal on our page please message us via facebook with all the animal's details, your contact details and attach a picture.

You should also contact local vets to see if any injured animals have been taken in.  Lost dogs should be reported to the dog warden on 01942671215.  Please note that the Dog Warden service is provided by Leigh Cats and Dogs Home.

Council Dog Wardens

  • Leigh Dogs and Cats Home: private kennels that take in the strays for local councils: Bolton, Salford, St Helens, West Lancs and Wigan areas. Tel: 01942 671215

  • Wigan Council: Tel: 01942 404364 (24-hr line). 
    Sadly some lost animals are victims of road accidents.  In this instance the local council have responsibility for removing animals from the road.  We recommend that if you have lost a pet, as well as searching locally and putting word out on social media that you ring the council to see if they have removed any bodies from the road.  It is not a pleasant thought but one of the worst things about losing a pet is the uncertainty.  Our understanding is that the council routinely scan all animals collected in these circumstances for microchips.  It’s worth making the call.
