Dog theft is a heart-breaking crime that has a huge impact on individuals and families across Milton Keynes.

With a 170% increase in dog theft across the country and a 33% rise in the South East, we must do more to tackle this rise in animal crime.

If I’m elected as your Local Councillor in May, I’m committed to setting up Milton Keynes’ first Dog Theft Task Force.

This task force will raise awareness of dog theft and look at how we can reduce this rising trend in dognapping in Loughton and Shenley.

Together we can protect our pets.
