At Animal Friends Insurance, protecting animals is at the heart of what we do and as pet owners ourselves, we understand how important they are and how devastating it can be to even think about having our beloved pet stolen.
Our pets are our world. Which is why we want to equip our customers and the general public with the right preventative tools and information to keep themselves and their pets safe from thieves.
DogLost reported a 170% increase in incidents of dog theft in 2020 and with only 1% of these heart-breaking crimes resulting in a criminal charge in England and Wales*. We think it’s time for change!
- The numbers are growing – more and more pets are being stolen.
- Pets are seen as property – to the law they are the same as a laptop, to us they’re our family.
- Pet theft is devastating – the current punishment does not fit this heartbreaking crime.
Animal Friends could never replace a stolen pet, but most of our policies offer options to claim for pet theft and monetary support for advertising and rewards.

We're supporting Pet Theft Reform, an evidence-based campaign calling for tougher pet theft legislation and compulsory microchip scanning by vets.
We believe pets are part of the family and we wouldn't ever be without them.
Pet theft is devastating and it must be taken seriously! That's why, as part of our ongoing commitment to promote animal welfare, Animal Friends is fighting for those with no voice of their own.
Safe with us
As part of our mission to create a better life for every animal, we’re offering to safeguard microchip numbers on behalf of all of our customers. Providing your pet with a better chance to get home if you were ever separated. Customers can login or register to their online account and save the microchip number under their pet's details.
Our Pet Theft hub can also provide owners everywhere with expert preventative advice around home security, dog walk safety, recall training and social media precautions.
