Stolen Dogs - Columbus

In the past few days I have heard of multiple cases of dogs being stolen from backyards in Columbus or in two instances, stolen from a shelter. Please be on the lookout for these pups.

Chrissy, an 8-10 week old white pit mix pup, disappeared from the shelter Sunday night (Nov. 15th). She may have been stolen, since coincidentally another pit disappeared from another shelter on the same night. If anyone was at PWP and saw ANYTHING that might lead to her recovery, or if you think you may have seen her or know of her whereabouts, please call the shelter ASAP at 267-PAWS or email us at mailto:%20pets@petswithoutparents.net.


Someone posed as a CHA volunteer and stole Marley, a 1-year-old Akita/Boxer mix.
"They can come to the shelter anytime, ring the doorbell, knock on the door, bring the dog back, no questions asked at all," said CHA's Development Director Terri Montigny.
Montigny said the fake volunteer took the dog out for a walk in the play area.
Columbus police are investigating.
Marley was wearing a blue collar and a CHA tag.
Anyone with information is asked to call police or the CHA shelter at 614-891-5280

Also missing: Young, female, unspayed, white, tan and red female pit bull. She is not wearing a collar. It was removed from her and left laying in the yard

Please, if at all possible, do not let your dogs out unsupervised

It's so upsetting to hear about dogs being stolen. At the same time, I'm shocked how many people just leave their dogs unattended, especially on busy streets in Chicago. We see a lot of dogs just tied up and left outside stores, restaurants, and bars. Knowing what could happen, I never leave our dogs unattended at any time. We get a lot of compliments by undesirable people, and my biggest fear is that they may break in to our house and take our dogs (there are a lot of break ins in the neighborhood).

These are the dogs of HELP FIDO...our dogs...this is why we are here...
