Animal Search UK’s professional missing pet search team, led by former West Midlands police officer Tom Watkins, came to Crystal Palace to look for beloved pet Rosa on June 12.

Rosa is a rescue dog from Spain, who was saved from a bad life.

She has a dog companion, Jessie, a disabled german shepherd who attended the search.

Tom said: “Most missing pets are found within a mile of home – the challenge faced by owners, is making sure that as many people as possible know that their pet has gone missing, and encouraging them to be vigilant in keeping an eye out for them.

“Unfortunately, work and family commitments often mean that owners don’t have as much time as they’d like to devote scouring the area looking for their missing pet, and this is one of the ways in which Animal Search UK can help. Our professional, uniformed specialist missing pet search teams can usually be at any location in the UK within 48 hours, to help owners find a missing pet.

“We’ve made sure that we have as much background as possible before we commenced our search. We’ve checked details about Rosa’s normal routine, and his usual patterns of movement in the area”

“Armed with this background information, we’re ready for the search effort to continue. Our service combines systematic local enquiries including door to door, with a thorough publicity campaign. Everybody we will speak to will informed of the relevant details, and left with information and photos of Rosa.”

Anyone with information about Rosa’s whereabouts can ring the Animal Search UK free confidential helpline on 0800 4 320 340 and quote case ref: 187724 or or email information to
