Yes, this happened here. I am furious! We are installing a surveillance camera system immediately! We have an alarm system for intruders, fire, drop in temperature etc etc but now need more.
This happened during business hours while the majority of the staff was out walking the dogs. The culprits walked in and helped themselves to one of our dogs and somehow managed to get out of the building unseen. Our staff is devastated to say the least. They love these dogs and do everything in their power to make a better life for them and give them a second chance at a forever loving home.
The good news is yesterday someone called the police and said that our dog had been dumped and was at their home! The police picked him up and brought him back to BHS to everyone’s delight!!!! He is quite the celebrity and has been on the news numerous times! He will be adopted soon I am sure!!!
One of the other dogs missing has been returned also. He was found tied to a post where he would be seen and they had put a coat on him (thankfully) and left a note. I don’t know what the note said as this is a police matter and they aren’t talking as it is an ongoing investigation. One more dog to go and we are hoping and praying that she is returned also.
What makes people do something like this? There are plenty of dogs out there that need homes, you don’t have to steal one. I don’t think they ever thought there would be the outcry and publicity that came out of this with the dogs pictures in the newspapers and on the television. Our wonderful Executive Director Suzan jumped on this the second she found out about it and got the word out!!!! You can bet your boots that this will never happen again, don’t mess with Suzan when it comes to our animals!!!
We are going to get another big snowstorm today. Schools are cancelled much to the delight of all the children. There is nothing like hearing the words ‘school is canceled’ to make a youngster don their snow clothes and head out for a day of sledding and building forts. I remember those days, I would hold my breath waiting to see if our school was on the list that was closed for the day, now you know you all did too! :o)
