There has been a recent increase in pet theft in the area
Torrequebrada to Torremuelle. We do advice pet owners not to leave
their pets unattended. This activity is most likely NOT only common in
this area so where ever you might be on the Costa del Sol be warned.
heard quite a few reports of especially breed dogs, being snatched from
outside supermarkets, as well as from the gardens of their family. Be
extra careful and do not leave your animals unattended and within reach
of strangers as it seems it has become a lucrative "business" kidnap or
* Do not leave your pet unattended in public spaces, or within reach of strangers.
* Do ensure that your pet is micro chipped, and also notify your vet so you flag your pet as stolen.
* Also notify the police if theft is the likely cause of your pet´s disappearance.
note that if your pet actually has escaped and does not have a
microchip it will most likely be put to sleep by your local "municipal"
pen within 10 business days or less if captured by a dog/cat catcher.
Do contact your local animal pen as quickly as possible to avoid loss
of life of a dear one. Even if your pet is micro chipped it is most
likely it will be put to sleep if the municipal pen cannot reach you
within "reasonable time".

Boycott Chinese products due to inhuman slaughter of over 50.000 dogs. 50.000 dogs were put to death in inhuman fashion due to the treat of rabies. No effort was made in testing the animals before killing them in the most horrible ways. DO NOT TRADE WITH UNCIVILIZED NATIONS. BOYCOTT CHINA AND CHINESE PRODUCTS NOW.
