Pet Theft

You shouldn't have to live in fear of pet theft. So we're tackling this cruel crime and clamping down on its perpetrators.

Reports of the cruel crime of pet theft is on the rise. And while recent police investigations into pet theft have resulted in numerous raids and arrests, more can be done.

That's why we have set up a new taskforce to gather evidence to understand the factors that may be contributing to any perceived rise in thefts and to recommend any necessary measures to tackle the problem. 

The taskforce will:

  • work with police, law enforcement, and experts to understand and tackle pet theft
  • consider the issue from end to end, including causes, prevention, reporting, enforcement and prosecution.
  • make clear and timely recommendations on ways to reduce pet theft.
