Reclassify the theft of a pet to a specific crime in its own right.

“We have 100 days to get 42,700 signatures. In this time over 500 dogs will be recorded as stolen for irresponsible breeding in horrific conditions, dog baiting, dog fighting, as well as for selling on and ransom.”

Review the sentencing guidelines for theft offences, so that where the theft of a family pet is involved, monetary value is irrelevant for the categorisation of the crime for sentencing purposes.
