Croydon Council dog warden service works in close partnership with Dogs Trust to help promote responsible dog ownership.
There is a UK wide overpopulation of unwanted dogs and although this is due to a large number of unscrupulous backyard breeders, there are also many owners who would like to have their dog neutered but simply cannot afford it, which leads to accidental litters, continuous straying, dog thefts and unneutered dogs being sold to new owners, antisocial behaviour involving dogs and dangerous dogs so I hope this initiative will help curb these problems.

In addition to this campaign, they are also holding a dog awareness event on August 10 in Lloyd Park.
This event includes:
· Free microchipping*
· Free I.D tags
· Free behavioural and training advice
· Low-cost neutering vouchers
· Lost dogs advice
· Rescue and stray dog adoption information
· Dogs and the law
· Advice on dog related issues within the borough
