Suffolk Police has published images of 48 dogs in an effort to find their owners after the animals were seized as part of a police operation last month. Officers recovered 83 dogs of various breeds and ages from a travellers’ site in Ipswich. None of the dogs have yet been reunited with their owners.
Detective Chief Inspector Nicola Wallace, senior investigating officer for the operation, said: “We are keen to hear from anyone who believes any of the dogs in the images may be theirs.
“During the last few weeks officers have been liaising with other police forces around the country, as well as conducting a number of other enquiries, in order to establish where the dogs may have originated from.”
Anyone who believes that one or more of the dogs is theirs is asked to email police with proof of ownership at [email protected]

Any details of microchipping can be used to identify them. However, owners are asked to note that all these dogs either do not have microchips or have chips which may not be correctly registered.
Six people were arrested in connection with the operation on suspicion of conspiracy to steal.
A 39-year-old man, a 34-year-old man and two women aged 41 and 46 have been bailed until June 17.
A second 34-year-old man and a 35-year-old woman have both been released and will face no further action.
