What I can do to help
- Down load and print out our mailbox ($5000 REWARD flyer) and distribute it around your neighbourhood and local dog parks
- Print out our community shop poster and put these in local dairies and community area
- If you suspect that dog fighting is happening in your neighborhood, please contact
- Paw Justice 09 5500541
- Since dogfighters typically keep their dogs chained, you can help deter dogfighters by pushing for anti chaining rules in local council.
Keep an eye out
Look for coloured marks, numbers and/or ribbons on your letterbox, fence, gate, pavement or driveway. These marks often look like spray-painted council markings. These markings will typically be accompanied by a coding system that signifies the number of dogs at the property eg: you may see two ribbons, a number “2” or two dots on a property that has two dogs. If you spot a marking:
Remove it immediately
Keep your dog(s) inside
Notify your neighbours
Keep Your Dog Safe
Ensure your property is well fenced and all gates are securely LOCKED. If you do not already have locks on your gates, install them now and make sure they’re locked EVERY TIME you leave the house.
Better still, if you are leaving the house keep your dog(s) locked inside until you return. No, it’s not ideal but if there are thieves operating in your area it is better to be safe than sorry. Dogs are often stolen during the day, when you are at work.
Do not allow your dog(s) to sleep outside at night. Thieves are returning to steal dogs that are left outside after dark.
