Dog Theft

GroomArts supporting SAMPA

With the increase in dog theft rising nearly 24% in the last three year, GroomArts would like to look at supporting another organisation that wants to take action and improve the welfare of animals, making sure they can stay with their rightful owners. We want more than well qualified dog groomers and people that understand health and nutrition or how to understand their dog’s behaviour; we want a nation of well-informed pet owners and pet service industry workers that understand their dog is a part of the family and needs to be treated and respected accordingly.

Here is the statement from SAMPA:


  • Don’t leave your dog outside a shop or supermarket
  • Don’t let your dog out of sight during exercise
  • Don’t leave a dog unattended in a vehicle
  • Make sure your garden, house and outside kennels are secure
  • Be careful who can see your pet’s photos on social media


  • A clear photo of your pet
  • Your dog’s microchip number
  • Local Animal Warden's telephone number
  • Your dog’s microchip database telephone number, check your contact details are up to date and flag as missing and contact DogLost (‪01633 673859 or
