Nicky Byrne, a local resident has setup a Facebook group to offer support and share ideas on the prevention of dog theft in our locality.
The private Facebook group is called 'Dog Theft Prevention - Balham, Clapham, Tooting & Wandsworth
' and its description reads:
'Hearing about so many attempted dog thefts locally and reading about it happening continuously across the UK, just makes me so angry and sad.
Pets are family and the heartbreak that dognapping results in is just so awful. It's also taking the joy out of dog walking for the fear of being approached.
I'm starting this local group to discuss ANYTHING we can do to try and help with this horrible issue. Even if it's just sharing ideas and support.
Thanks everyone and stay safe!'
Great idea to help keep those family pups safe and secure with their loving owners.
