Members of Tullamore Garda Station and Local Authority Dog Warden are working together as part of a crime prevention and detection initiative.
Two dogs were recovered last Friday after they were taken from a house in Mucklagh the previous day.
Last week Gardaí warned that houses are being targeted by thieves leaving a mark of white paint on the outer walls to signify that there's an animal on the property.
