A DOG sanctuary has appealed to pet owners throughout the borough to take better care of their animals after finding a well-above average number of abandoned canines.

Battersea Dogs and Cats Home ranked Bromley as the ninth worst borough in London for stray dogs and Greenwich as the worst.

Intake records show 182 lost or abandoned dogs were brought in from Bromley during 2007, far exceeding the average of 140 lost dogs per borough over the same period.

The findings have led Battersea to launch a campaign encouraging dog owners in the borough to tag and microchip their pets.
