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

The Stolen and Missing Pets Alliance
, where there’s growing support for owners and pets.
On this week’s episode of

  • Resources available in the event that you’ve had an animal stolen.
