Missing Dog Owners Beware!
Missing dog organisations and their owners are being targetted by scammers.  

Callers claim to have the missing dog in their possession.


They ask for money in return for the dog.

They will not be able to provide you with any proof that they have your dog

In some cases they are threatening and state they will kill the dog if you do not pay.

They request the money via bank transfer


They wait on the phone until the payment has been made and received in their account

Once they have the money, thats the last you will hear and your money will be long gone.

If you have been targetted by a scammer please contact us
