What we will do

We will endeavour to remove a dead animal as soon as possible on getting a report.

If it is unsafe for us to remove the animal, we will wait for a more suitable time of day or request assistance from other agencies such as the police.

We do our best to check for any identification on domestic pets including a chip scan, and will attempt to identify and contact the owner wherever possible.
