Pet Theft Awareness Day 2024: February 14th is Pet Theft Awareness Day, a day dedicated to celebrating love—especially love for our furry friends. To raise awareness of the shameful act of pet theft, we commemorate Pet Theft Awareness Day with consideration for our four-legged friends. It has been satisfying to domesticate animals throughout human history.

Animals and humans have an unbreakable sense of trust and connection, so being apart can be devastating for both. Pet Theft Awareness Day is an excellent opportunity to disseminate information about pet safety and the steps we can take to retrieve stolen animals, as pet theft and dognapping are at startlingly high rates.

Pet Theft Awareness Day History

This day is celebrated to raise awareness of the different forms of identification that can help find missing pets. Last Chance for Animals was established in 1988 to raise awareness of domesticated animal advocacy. For more than 20 years, Last Chance for Animals, a nonprofit organization devoted to animal rehabilitation, has spearheaded the campaign against pet theft. Chris DeRose, an actor, founded the nonprofit in 1984 to raise awareness of pet safety.

More than half of American families own a pet. The only thing that can compare to our fondness for our furry friends is our shared concern for their safety. The chance of losing our pets can never be too low, no of how many doors we lock or leashes we purchase. At some point in their lives, one in three pets go missing; only 20% of them are found and returned to their family. The worry that a stranger may purposefully try to harm your family or your pet through petty theft adds to these tragic figures.

The idea that prevention is preferable to treatment served as the foundation for the day. There are no words to describe the anguish of losing a pet. We must adhere to all safety procedures that guarantee the security of our pets in light of the rising number of pet theft incidents. Last Chance for Animals supports numerous pet identification techniques, including microchipping and tattooing. If your pet goes lost, the foundation offers a carefully thought-out road map and recovery strategy.
