    Answered . You can report the theft to the police. They might want to see some proof that the pet was yours - did you register her? Take her to the vet? Then great.

    You can also file in the small claims court in the county where the thief lives. Good luck to you.

    Answered . To piggy back off Ms. Farber's advice, do both. I do not expect the police to put many resources into getting your pet back. You need to file a suit for "return of personal property" with the small claims court.

    You can get it from the clerks or from www.nccourts.org. Note that you should expect to pay approximately $150.00 to file the claim.
