DogLost forms Alliance to force change
DogLost has joined four organisations in the field of pet theft and loss to push for greater reform to reduce the impact the issue has for owners.

I Love My Dog Video for DogLost
The students from the Pauline Quirke Academy Romford have produced I Love My Dog to create awareness of dog theft.
The five minute video features the students talking about why they love their dogs before the story cuts to the more sinister scenerio of dog theft from the street and in cars.
It also stars Pauline's own choc lab, Bailey Quirke, who starred with her in the hit ITV drama, Broadchurch.
Said director, Mark Bowman, "Last month, my students at The Pauline Quirke Academy were educated on the unfortunate and devastating effects many families face when their beloved dog goes missing. We wanted to make this video to support DogLost, who are, in a word, amazing."
