Our dogs and cats are priceless, irreplaceable members of our families and the law should reflect this.

In law our pets are classified as property, second hand goods, valued under £500, the punishment is usually a messily £250 fine! The Sentencing Council’s Guidelines exclude any serious sentencing making this a low-risk high-reward crime, a gift for dog thieves.

SAMPA has been campaigning to protect our domestic pets from theft since 2014 and we are proud that our work has resulted in the Government announcement that there will be a new Pet Abduction offence!

On Dog Theft Awareness Day (14 March) celebrities Ricky Gervais, David Walliams, Sarah Cox and Claire Balding joined forces to endorse the fact that our dogs and cats are not property but members of our families, special thanks to Emma Kennedy who produced the video, in calling for change in law to stop spiral Pet Theft in the UK.

Our dogs are not inanimate objects! Join the debate and email your MP
