Dead Animal Removal

We can arrange for the removal of larger dead animals from all public areas and highways. This service is also available for dead animals on private land for a fee of £35, please use the contact form at the bottom of this page to report.

All dogs and cats which are collected are checked for identification, including microchips. Where details of an owner are found, they will be contacted.

We ensure that the collection and disposal of a dead animal is in a respectful manner.
