To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, how many pets were reported stolen in 2015.
20 December 2016
The Home Office holds statistics on notifiable offences recorded by the police. The police record offences of thefts in a number of categories and supply this information to the Home Office. Thefts of pets in general as well as dogs and cats more specifically are most likely to be recorded within ‘other theft’ and cannot be separately identified within this category.
