More help available for those affected by the Dangerous Dogs Act

DDAWatch, a voluntary organisation offering free help and advice to those affected by or concerned with canine legislation, have expanded their services due to a massive increase in demand.

In the last 18 months the group have been inundated with requests for help via their telephone helplines. Along with the launch of their new website DDAWatch are are pleased to announce that with imediate effect two more helplines are open for concerned members of the public.

Alison Green of DDAWatch said

" Its a pleasure to welcome on board Maria and Julia who will help run the two new lines however it is sad that in this day and age we are having to increase help offered to people who are affected by nothing short of discrimination. Those who contact us may have had their dogs seized or simply wish to know more about canine legislation. While we are not legal experts we have a sound knowledge on most canine legislation, a great team and contacts with solicitors should anyone need legal representation. Just as importantly we offer an ear and support for owners who often need someone to talk to through what is often a heartbreaking time."

All helplines cost the same as a local call and are avaliable 365 days of the year between 9.30 and 9.30. A mobile number is also avalaible for calls outside of those hours.

  1. This is absolutely wonderful news ! Thank you for being here for them and for those here who work so hard to save these precious dogs who are victims of this horrid law !

    Know that I will be here for them, every step of the way !

    One thing to remember, it was the power of the people who put in place those who support the ban and who are responsible for this law - it will be the power of the people who can displace them and put into power those who can turn it around FOR the dogs ! LAWMAKERS - WORK FOR US !
