Found animals

What to do when you have found a dead, wounded or wandering animal on the territory of the City of Brussels (1000, 1020, 1120, 1130)?

Weekdays from 8 am to 4 pm: contact the Disinfection Unit of the City of Brussels. The animal will be removed by the City services and given to an approved organization for its disposal in the best conditions.

At the weekend or in the evening after 4 pm, contact the emergency services at 112 or the police at 101. The animal will be given to an approved organization for its disposal in the best conditions.

If it is during office hours (Monday to Friday from 9 am to 5 pm) and on Saturday from 9 am to 1 pm:

If it is a holiday, a Sunday or after 5 pm:

  • if it is small and transportable in a box with holes, bring the animal to the Veterinary Clinic Champ du Roi which is approved "wildlife"
  • if it is tall, contact the emergency services at 112 or the police at 101. They will bring the animal to the Veterinary Clinic Champ du Roi which is approved "wildlife" or another veterinarian approved "wildlife" and available at the time.

If it is sociable and can be caught, take it to the vet to see if it is identified (microchip) to find its owners.

If it is fearful, contact the emergency services at 112 or 101 (police). They will contact Veeweyde during the week between 7 am and 9 pm or SAVU if it is night or a holiday. A research of the owners will be undertaken and if these do not appear, the animal will be put up for adoption.

If it is sociable and can be caught, take it to the vet to check if it is identified (microchip) to find its owners.

If it is fearful or wild, check if it has a cut in its left ear to indicate that it has been sterilized and returned to its territory.

If it does not have a cut, inform an association that deals with "field" cats (sterilization, care, possible adoption if sociable):

Adpot a cat

Check out the associations that collect cats (list in "I found a stray cat"). As the wildest cats are released on their territory after sterilization, only the most sociable cats are adopted. It is also possible to adopt kittens.

Adopt a dog

For dogs, also think about adoption at an association that collects unfortunate dogs. Give them a second chance.
