HAWKWIND – 50th Anniversary Tour – thinking of the dogs!!
Hawkwind are proud to be helping to raise awareness of the ever growing problem of pet theft.
Each day 7.5 dogs are stolen, and on average 28 dogs a day go missing in the UK, which is heartbreaking for the families concerned.
At every gig on our 50th anniversary tour, we will be projecting images and details of lost and stolen pets from each area.
Please take a moment to look at the photographs on the screen, and if you have seen any of these dogs, please get in touch. There are families out there who are just waiting with hope for your call.
At the moment pet theft is not taken seriously in UK law. Pets are treated the same as inanimate objects such as bicycles, mobile phones or garden ornaments..
There is a bill scheduled for a reading in Parliament, when it reforms, that hopefully will change this and get pets recognised as sentient creatures and pet theft treated with the severity it deserves.
For more information on this, please go to https://petition.parliament.uk/petitions/244530 and get in touch with your MP to ask him to support the bill.
