A national anti dog theft campaign is set to launch in Eastbourne.

This comes after huge concern among local dog owners of suspicious people loitering near to them when walking their dog.

Sammie Kelt has posted: “I have been liaising with the founder of a national anti dog theft campaign in preparation of bringing the nonprofit scheme to Pevensey Bay, Pevensey and the wider community of Eastbourne.

There are a few more details to sort and a Facebook page to create but this should be up and running shortly.

The specific Facebook page will be aimed at supporting and helping to keeping us and our beloved fur family safe.”
