Carlton Forest Rescue Kennels

Stray dogs collected by the Dog Warden Service or handed in by a Member of the Public will be kennelled at Carlton Forest Rescue Kennels, located on Blyth Road, Worksop, until the owner can be found.

The Rescue Centre is spot-checked at least once every month by our Environmental Health Manager to ensure that it is clean, safe and the animals are well looked after.  This is done to ensure that it achieves the high standards that we expect from our contractors.

Any dog kennelled as a Stray Dog will have its own kennel with a run.  It will be provided with clean, dry bedding and the dogs are exercised every day.  Each dog has access to fresh clean water and food will be administered if the dog is still in kennels at 'Feeding Time'.

The Council currently has no concerns about the living accommodation or welfare of any of the stray dogs that are taken to this establishment.

In order for stray dogs to be released, any charges incurred must be paid in full.  These charges are set by the Local Authority and NOT by the Rescue Centre. If you do not agree with what you have been charged, please call the Council on 01909 533533 (ask for Julian Proudman).

Please Be Aware There is a legal requirement to have a properly engraved collar and tag with the name and address (including postcode) of the owner on every dog in a public place, even if the dog has a microchip.

Kennel Charges 

If the kennels hold more than 1 of your dogs, a separate fee will apply for each dog 

How much will I have to pay?
