Pet theft awareness
Pet theft is on the rise
Unfortunately, the popularity of dogs has led to a rise in dog theft, with thieves looking to cash in while demand is at an all-time high. Cat’s have sadly always been a prime target for an opportunistic thief as so few cats have a microchip and ownership dispute is much more difficult. Figures released in 2021 show an increase in rabbit theft also, and once again the lack of a microchip makes identification and ownership dispute really difficult.
We are often asked for tips so owners can avoid situations like pet thefts. We strongly recommend getting your pet a microchip so if your pet does go missing it is easier for the vet or organisation to find you. Our microchips are only £19.99 and last the lifetime of your pet.
