Theresa May is the Home Secretary, and can override the decision of the UK Border Agency.
I’d like to encourage you all to email Theresa May today at: email@example.com.
Please inform her that:
- 1. Dog has been denied entry to the UK
- 2. In 2011, he was granted a visa, yet this time, he hasn’t. Surely one year can’t make any difference?
- 3. He’s captured over 7,000 fugitives. He should be able to travel freely to the UK
If everyone reading can just send off one email today, then that’d be great! Let’s flood her inbox.

Over the past few days, I’ve had a lot of Dog fans asking what they can do to help. Well, here’s what I would suggest:
- Sign http://www.petitiononline.com/DTBHUK/petition.html – that will be sent to the UK Border Agency, as well as the Home Secretary.
- Share the petition link via Twitter, Facebook, eMail, word of mouth etc.
- Email The Home Secretary, Theresa May. Her email address is: firstname.lastname@example.org. Tell her that Dog has applied for a visa to visit the UK this year. He’s been denied. Ask her (politely!) if she could intervene in this matter to over rule the UK Border Agency’s decision to deny Dog his visa. You can also notify her of the petition – currently, 2,341 UK citizens support Dog’s application to visit the UK.Alternatively, if you’d like to phone her, her Westminster phone number is 020 7219 5206.
- Contact your local MP. To find your local MP, visit: http://findyourmp.parliament.uk/and enter your town or post code. MPs are elected to convey our concerns to Parliament. They should be told about Dog being denied a visa, as they may be able to publicly support the campaign, discuss it in Parliament, or talk to Theresa May and the UK Border Agency representatives directly.
- Follow @dogtobritain on Twitter. I’ll be posting daily updates there. Thanks to the 500+ of you currently following!
