Figures from authorities across London show that three stray dogs are put to sleep every day.
We work very closely with local authorities who should be commended on their efforts to encourage responsible dog ownership.
They do not want to put dogs to sleep but they are struggling to cope with such huge numbers of dogs in a difficult economic climate. Simple steps such as microchipping can help prevent accidental strays.
The fact that more dogs are being reunited with their owners because of microchips is a huge step forward.
