Dead animal collections

You can raise a request for us to collect a dead animal if it is located within the Hull city boundary (except on the A63) on –

  • a public highway
  • land adjacent to a public highway
  • areas open to the public
  • private land (excluding railway land, watercourses and motorways)

To report a dead animal on the A63/A1033 (Clive Sullivan Way, Castle Street, Garrison Road and Hedon Road), contact Highways England on 0300 1235 000 or via email

You can also telephone Humberside Police on 101.

Domestic animals

In cases of extreme hardship, and when requested as a last resort, we also collect pets from domestic properties.

What happens next

We collect dead animals within two working day of receiving the request, including all bank holidays and public holidays except Christmas Day.

All dogs and cats are scanned for microchips to find the owner.
