Last Chance for Animals (LCA), a national, nonprofit animal protection organization, invites you to participate in a national campaign aimed at raising public awareness of a threatening epidemic - pet theft. Nearly two million companion animals are stolen each year. Some are taken under false pretense through "free to a good home" ads, abducted from their yards, or are taken from humane shelters through a practice called pound seizure. These animals are then sold to research laboratories, dog-fighting rings, or puppy mills, where they are abused and often killed.

On Valentine’s Day, February 14th of every year, LCA educates the public about Pet Theft Awareness Day with the help of individuals and other animal organizations throughout the United States. Your participation can make all the difference.

By working together, we can spread the message about the problem of pet theft, memorialize the nearly 2 million animals taken each year, and educate citizens on how they can protect their companion animals

Join our nationwide network of organizations and individuals in this important crusade!
