An Garda Síochána have issued the follow advice in relation to animal safety:

  • Pets should be microchipped so they can be easily identified if found.
  • Place contact details on the animal’s collar.
  • Additional crime prevention measures should be considered in the home (such as CCTV) where a high-value breed of animal is housed.
  • In the instance where a lost animal is found, ensure the rightful owner is contacted before returning them.
