Pet Theft Awareness Day
On February 14th of every year,
LCA celebrates Pet Theft Awareness Day (PTAD) by educating the public

animal organizations throughout the United States.
LCA’s Animal News Van makes special appearances at local Los Angeles dog
parks with LCA’s staff and volunteers handing out important information
on pet theft.

every day!). These tags both memorialize the stolen pets that lost their
lives for medical research and serve as a tool to educate others about
