Renfrewshire Council

Animal Warden Service

Animal wardens encourage responsible dog ownership and deal with complaints about stray dogs and dog nuisance throughout Renfrewshire.

Stray dogs are checked for a microchip or owner's details. 

If there are no details found, the dog is taken to the SSPCA kennels at Cardonald. The dogs are kennelled here and the majority of dogs are claimed within seven days.

You can find out more on our lost dogs webpage.

You can contact the SSPCA at:

SSPCA Cardonald,
125 Kinnell Avenue,
G52 3RY

You can also phone them on 0300 099 999.

Animal wardens also work with the local community to raise awareness of responsible dog ownership. This includes placing 'no fouling' signage in public areas and monitoring the dog bins provided in various locations.

To report stray, nuisance or dog waste problems, contact us.
