We offer this service in the following Countries;

With a huge underground market for stolen pets growing dramatically each year, Critter Cops are not afraid to get down and dirty and fight the problem head on.  At least 10% of all lost pets are stolen and as a worldwide company, we feel an obligation to be catalysts for reducing this figure.


So how are we doing this? Critter Cops understands how theft rings work, and how stolen pets are distributed throughout their vast networks. We have spent countless hours gaining anonymous access to dark net sites where theft rings attempt to sell stolen pets illegally. 

Dark Net (or Darknet) is an umbrella term describing the portions of the Internet purposefully not open to public view or hidden networks whose architecture is superimposed on that of the Internet. They are the ''black markets'' of the internet, not indexed by search engines such as Google, Yahoo or Bing. These are networks that are only available to a select group of people and not to the general internet public, and only accessible via authorization or specific software and configurations.

Unfortunately, law enforcement do not have the capabilities to monitor illegal pet sales as the darknet has so many other illegal activities seen as a higher priority for investigators above pet theft.

But Critter Cops is on the case!

If you would like to have our team scan the darknet for possible matches to your stolen pet, simply fill in the form and we will provide you with a report within 48 hours.
