Dog T.A.G is a non-profit making organisation based in the West Midlands
We are a small team of dedicated volunteers helping to campaign against dog thefts, reunification of missing dogs and dog safety throughout the West Midlands region.
Promoting increased public awareness of the escalation of dog thefts in the UK.
Helping to prevent thefts by educating the general public about the actions we can take to keep our dogs safer and how not to be a victim of dog theft.
Assisting to reunite lost dogs and help support owners who have had their dogs stolen or lost by raising the profile of their dog via our social media sites, supporters, other dog welfare contacts and web-page.
Dog thefts are increasing in the UK
DOG THEFT IS ON THE INCREASE.
Insurance firm Direct Line is the latest to publish figures, from police forces in England and Wales, showing that 121 more dogs were stolen in 2017 than the year before with almost 2,000 reported to the police.
Some might see an opportunity to make quick cash by stealing dogs for resale, reward monies or mass breeding purposes.
Some dogs are used in dog fighting rings or as dog bait for the 'fighting dog to practice on, maim or kill'.
There are ways we can try and minimise the risks to our dogs and take steps to keep our dogs safe!
