Some horrible human beings stole a chihuahua puppy stolen from Animal Care & Control this past Friday, January 23, between the hours of 4 p.m. and 4:30 p.m. How mean! The stolen puppy was "a distinctive golden brindle color with white markings and weighed approximately two pounds." The little guy was scheduled to be put up for adoption to the public on Saturday. And judging by those eyes and ears, he would have found a great new home right away.

The shelter now fears that the puppy "may be treated cruelly and/or not receive proper care." Do you know anything about it? SF Animal Care & Control has released this surveillance camera footage of two suspects. It is believed that they broke into the building, in an unauthorized area, and then swiped the pup. The shelter in question is located at 1200 15th Street (at Harrison) in the Mission / Potrero area of the city near Safeway.

All tips an info to help get the pup back, or if you know any info leading to the arrest of the suspects, should be directed to Animal Care & Control's emergency line at 415-554-9400.
