Dead Animals and Lost Domestic Pets

Basingstoke and Deane Borough Council are responsible for the removal of dead animals from the highway and public open spaces.

The link to report a dead animal is:

Bodies of domestic pets will be scanned for evidence of micro-chipping and, if found, the owner will be contacted. Domestic pets will be retained for a day to allow for owners to collect them, should they so wish.

The Borough Council logs all reports of dead domestic animals that are removed, so if you are missing a family pet and suspect that it may have been involved in an accident, please contact them.

They also log reports of lost and found domestic pets, so if your pet is missing you can report it to the Council by calling (01256) 844844. Details of where your pet was last seen and any distinguishing features will help them answer your query.
