Warren Avenue kennels

Warren Avenue Kennels is Southampton City Council's stray dog facility and cares for dogs found in Southampton, Test Valley and New Forest areas.Jackie 2

Dogs are brought to the kennels by Dog Wardens/Animal Welfare Officers from each Local Authority, and by members of the public who have found dogs.

Dogs are held for a short period (7 days) while efforts are made to identify an owner. Any unclaimed dogs are passed to animal welfare groups throughout the south of England for rehoming or directly rehomed. Please contact the kennels for further advice.
