Disappearing Dogs: The rise of UK pet thefts with CEO of Stolen & Missing Pets Alliance, Debbie Matthews #2
The theft of a beloved pet is one of the most harrowing experiences an owner could possibly go through, so what support is there for victims of animal thieves?
Not too long ago there was little that police could do, but thanks to this week’s guest Debbie Matthews, CEO of the Stolen and Missing Pets Alliance, there’s growing support for owners and pets.
On this week’s episode of “The Pet Perspective” we talk about Debbie’s own journey after retrieving her two dogs, what you can do to prevent pet theft, and sources of aid if you’re a victim.
This episode of The Pet Perspective covers:
- Debbie’s personal experience with pet theft, and how it started her campaigning for legal reform
- Motivations for pet theft and the most common methods
- Resources available in the event that you’ve had an animal stolen
- Tips for preventing theft out & about, and within the home
