If your dog is stolen
Step 3
You’ll need to obtain a crime reference number. We need this to issue LAB+BONE test kits to any police or rescue centres that find a dog matching your pet’s description. If a positive DNA identification is made, you can then work with the UK courts to produce a warrant and make a successful recovery.
