Yesterday the Kent Police dog unit received a generous donation of dog scanners from DogLost.
These scanners will assist handlers in the identification of stolen dogs. Kent Police say this has been a great working partnership, which has seen some amazing results returning stolen dogs to their owners.
Some dogs become lost during their daily walks, but there are criminals who steal dogs, especially pedigrees in order to sell them on. The police recommend that all dogs are chipped so that they can be scanned if found and returned to their owners.
DogLost is the UK’s largest lost and found dog service. They rely on donations to keep the service running and help to reunite hundreds of lost dogs with their owners each year.
