UPDATE MAY 8 2022 9:10pm DOG HAS BEEN FOUND . TURNED IN AT A POLICE STATION . THE DOG IS FINE.
Two females are about to spend time in a cage, They were caught on camera stealing a puppy, named Wendy from the SPCA on Sunday, May 8, 2022. The two females go into the small dog area, see the puppy and then one of them, a bit more heavy set than the other, opens the kennel, takes the dog, about 2:20 PM. She walks with the dog, then her other friend uses her girth to try to block the camera from observing her friend put the scared dog into a bag.
The two then leave, On the video, you can see them laugh about it. This is a crime. Someone knows who they are and will turn them in. Especially when a reward is announced. Police are involved. The police will not be nice when they come knocking. The way this works, officials say from past experience, is when they get solid info, police will knock on the door. If no answer in a few seconds, the door will be kicked in, and an arrest team will take the females into custody.
