neighbourhood watch logoPROTECT YOUR POOCH

Dog theft is on the rise and we are urging the public to keep their dogs SECURE, IN SIGHT and SEARCHABLE, and to help make pet theft a SPECIFIC OFFENCE.

Keep them:

1. SECURE (pets are easily stolen from unsecured gardens if left unattended)
2. IN SIGHT (when out and about keep them close and practice good recall)
3. SEARCHABLE (to support quicker recovery if they go missing keep them microchipped, tagged and up to date photos)

AND HELP MAKE PET THEFT A SPECIFIC OFFENCE
