Protect Your Pet From Dog Nappers
Keep Your Furry Friend Safe

US MED Gives Back The American Kennel Club reports that dog theft is not an unusual crime. State legislatures are taking the matter seriously. In Texas, the legislature is considering making pet theft a felony. California and Delaware have tried to regulate roadside pet sales, where stolen pets are often sold.

Some dog-nappers aim to collect a ransom. One California woman paid $10,000 for the return of a dog taken from her parked car. Other thieves want to make money selling the dog or may want to keep the pet for themselves.

Here are some tips to help you avoid pet-nappers:

* Don't leave a dog unattended in the yard for long periods, especially if the fenced yard is visible from the street.

* If a stranger admires your dog during walks, don't answer questions about how much it cost or tell where you live.

* Never leave a dog alone in the car even if it's locked. It's an invitation to thieves.

* Don't tie your dog outside a store. Either shop at a store that allows pets to come in or leave the dog at home. If your pet is missing, check with animal control. Dogs should have an identification on their collars or on a microchip. Immediately file a police report and distribute a flyer with a recent photo of the dog.
