Dog theft has increased over 650% from 2008 to 2016*. This statistic is based on reported dog thefts — many thefts go unreported. In New York City, dogs left tethered but unattended are particularly vulnerable. Rational Animal has created a campaign to increase awareness about dog stealing and how we can work together to protect our dogs.
Small and large dogs are at-risk: The top 5 breeds stolen: Pit Bulls, Yorkies, Chihuahuas, Pomeranians, Labradors, and French Bulldogs.
Never tie your dog outside of a store and leave unattended.
Help us spread the word via social media — we have a new public service announcement about this topic coming soon — sign in to volunteer today!
