Pet Theft Awareness Week 14th - 21st March 2017 is being held to raise awareness of pet theft across the Country. 

What can you do to protect your dogs?
  

  • Stay with your dogs – do not tie them up outside shops.
  • Ensure that any CCTV in your home covers the driveway and back garden gates.
  • Be careful what you publish on social media with pet photos, walks that you take, and if you house them outside in kennels.
  • When out walking, ensure that your dog has good recall and can be trusted to return when called.  If not keep them on a lead.
  • Ensure that you keep your eyes on your dog when off lead; don’t get distracted by your mobile phone, giving an opportunist thief time to escape with your pet unnoticed.
  • When visiting your vets, ask them to check your ID chip each year as a minimum, update your details when you move address or change contact numbers.  It is now law to have your dog chipped and keep your details up to date.

Lincolnshire Police works closely with the organisation DOGLOST, so if you find a dog or lose your own, we will work with them to try and find your pet as quickly as possible.
You can also pre-register your pets with them; so that photos and details can be circulated immediately should your pet go missing.
