The #PetTheftPetitions was created by Dr Daniel Allen after seeing an increase in thefts just before Christmas in 2017, and one story in particular about IVY. Dr Dan contacted Stolen And Missing Pets Alliance (SAMPA) and on 8th February 2018 the petition to Reclassify the theft of a pet to a specific crime in its own right went live.

Every pet theft is heartbreakingly cruel leaving family members devastated. Many pets will be sold on and will have a new identity living with a new family who have no idea they have a stolen pet. The only way to check this out is to get your new pets microchip registration checked, something many vets fail to do as they don’t want to get involved in ownership disputes but that’s the reason we microchip our pets isn’t it ?!?
