  • PET THEFT AWARENESS WEEK 2016

    Posted on by Kat Mozdzynski

    Unfortunately pet theft is on the rise in the UK. However there are a number of tips we can take on board to ensure the safety of our fur-families. PET THEFT AWARENESS WEEK (March 2016) is this week so read this article to help protect your dogs from thieves!

    Below is a true story of Zola who is still missing:

    “Words cannot express the sense of loss, helplessness and worry that are rushing around my head, every single moment and every day.” – Nadine.

    Nadine’s account is very moving and shows the human effect of this devastating crime…

    Zola was stolen at around 3pm on October 31 2014 outside of Tesco Express on Commercial Road, London. She is an 11 month old Jack Russell puppy, black and white in colour and is micro-chipped. Zola is quite small for her age due to the fact she may have been the runt of the litter.

    A 5ft 4” male was caught on CCTV walking her away. He was wearing a red jumper, khaki trousers and a cap which obscured his face on the security cameras.

    How does it feel to be a victim of dog theft? I have been inconsolable since Zola’s disappearance. Words cannot express the sense of loss, helplessness and worry that are rushing around my head, every single moment and every day. I am frantically trying to find Zola again, whilst having to battle with being rational and logical in working out the best possible way. The way the local community have rallied round and gone out of their way to help and organised searches has overwhelmed me and I remain in hope every second that Zola and I will be reunited. Having websites like PetTheftAwareness, and having the opportunity to post this article, again strengthens this feeling of a community who really care about animals and their welfare.
