Tracing Equines : Help with missing and stolen Horses

We want to highlight 'Tracing Equines' and the excellent work they do and how they can help reunite horses to owners:

From their forum:
Many horse owners and loaners have often wondered about the history of their equine friends, where they came from, what they used to be like, who their parents are. It's a minefield of questions and without help from others, it can often end up a lost cause. Tracing Equines aim is to help you in the best possible way that we know how, by providing information of where to start looking and an advert section where you can post your adverts, after registration. They will be published online and hopefully someone out there will recognise your horse or pony and get in touch with you.

Tracing Equines also aims to bring together the Horsewatch network round around the UK to give you up-to-date information and reports of stolen horses and reports of tack theft and suspicious incidents. All this from reputable Horsewatch sources.

Dogs are the new metal!

Why is there a recent increase in dog thefts?
Are the same people who were previously stealing scrap metal now taking our pets?

The 2013 Scrap Metal Dealers Act got tough on metal thieves.
Anyone selling scrap metal could not be paid in cash, they had to provide proof of name and address and dealers had to keep receipts and records.

The law got tough on scrap metal thieves but are pet owners paying the price?
Who would like to see the law get tough on pet thieves?

Still Missing

Ballymoss, Spirit, Kismet, Flash, and Toby are just five of the many horses stolen each year.

Imagine how the owners must have felt when they first found out that thieves had taken away a family member. The owners will never give up searching until their horse is returned or they get to the truth.

Perhaps you have seen one of the horses in the picture? Maybe you recognize one in a field? It could be that you have seen one of them for sale?

Please get in touch with us and we’ll pass on your emails to the owners.

Pet Theft Awareness is asking everyone to spend a few minutes posting the image on Facebook, forums and on Twitter. You never know who might see the picture.
