DTA Scanner Appeal

In recent years, DTA has received a positive response from charities that are keen to warn dog owners of the dangers of dog theft...

Discussions with some welfare and rescue charities have shown that there is a willingness and enthusiasm to microchip dogs before they are rehomed. However DTA has also stressed the need to scan ALL dogs for microchips prior to rehoming. It is vital that stray and donated dogs are scanned for microchips as they may actually be stolen dogs from a different part of the country whose owners are desperately searching for them. To make this process easier DTA will fundraise at dog shows like Discover Dogs and Crufts in order to purchase scanners that can, in turn be offered to deserving organisations, free of charge.

These organisations have all received scanners from the Appeal:
