Pet Theft Reform

The Stolen and Missing Pets Alliance (Sampa) have been lobbying to make pet theft a specific offence with tougher sentences since their launch in 2014. The Pet Theft Reform campaign was created by Dr Daniel Allen in collaboration with Sampa in 2018 - run by volunteers, it is very much a team effort. For media enquiries, please email us.

On March 24, 2021, Heidi Allen (Director of Advocacy and Policy, RSPCA) sent a joint letter in support of Pet Theft Reform to Lord Chancellor Robert Buckland QC.  Signatures include APGAW, APDAWG, Battersea, Blue Cross, Canine and Feline Sector Group, DogLost, Dogs Trust, The Dog Union, The FOAL Group, Hidden in Sight, The Kennel Club,  Murphy's Army, National Animal Welfare Trust, Pet Theft Awareness, Pet Theft Reform, RSPCA, Stolen and Missing Pets Alliance, Vets Get Scanning.
