PROTECT YOUR POOCH

Protect your Pooch

PROTECT YOUR POOCH

Dog theft is on the rise and we are urging the public to keep their dogs SECURE, IN SIGHT and SEARCHABLE, and 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)

HELP MAKE PET THEFT A SPECIFIC OFFENCE

In response to the increased fear of pet theft, Neighbourhood Watch has launched our PROTECT YOUR POOCH campaign.

The campaign will run on social media from 17th – 30th May but those who do not use social media can support the campaign by displaying this poster in their community, or attending our online Dog Theft webinar on the 27th May at 5pm. The webinar will be led by Neighbourhood Watch Network with speakers from the Met Police and Crimestoppers, as well as special guest speaker Katy Bourne, PCC for Sussex. To book your place, click here.

For anybody who wishes to have a PROTECT YOUR POOCH campaign pack, please email Deborah.waller@ourwatch.org.uk.
