Animal Search UK was established in 1999 by former police officer Tom Watkins, after hearing a local radio appeal to help find a dog that was running loose on the streets of Wolverhampton. As a pet lover, he had been frustrated that there were limited services available to help reunite owners and their missing pets, and set about trying to make a difference. Animal Search UK is now the leading reunification service for missing pets in the UK, helping to reunite thousands of pets with their owners each year.

April 2017 will see the exciting launch of 'The Real Pet Detective' the story of 18 years of Animal Search UK, from humble beginnings to the UK's finest. The true tales of missing pets, their owners and Tom's team of expert missing pet investigators.
