LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Two puppies stolen from a local pet shop have been returned, according to the official Facebook page of the foundation that was adopting them out.
The Woodstock Animal Foundation posted this message on their official Facebook page Thursday morning:
"OUR BABIES ARE BACK! Just minutes ago someone dumped our babies on the sidewalk in front of Petsmart. We weren't able to spot who dumped them but we do believe it was the suspect. All that matters is that they are safe again! We extend our heartfelt... gratitude to each and every one of you who shared their pictures and supported us throughout this ordeal. We are implementing new procedures to make sure this does not happen again. Thank you again for all the help and support. Now all these boys need is a true forever loving home."
On Wednesday, WDRB News reported that the a man walked out of the PetSmart adoption center on Westport Road with two of the dogs.
Two 9-week-old mixed breed puppies named Oscar and Johnny were at the PetSmart waiting to be adopted.
A man walked in asking to see them Wednesday morning.
"The worker let him take them out and she told him to stay by the adoption center and went inside to take care of a cat," said Macey Wohner with the Woodstock Animal Foundation.
By the time the worker had finished tending to the cat, the man and two puppies were gone.
"We got them from a bad situation, so it does devastate us to know they might be in the hands of someone who might mistreat them," said Wohner.
The Woodstock Animal Foundation was in the process of adopting the animals out.
It still had other pets at the store, but the focus became finding the two pups that were taken and the man that took them.
Wohner described the man as "a Caucasian male. He was in his twenties. He had sandy blonde -- almost a reddish tint hair. He was about 5'7" medium build. He has been in our adoption center before, so we have talked to him but haven't gotten a name or anything like that before."
That man could be seen on surveillance video, but PetSmart officials said that video couldn't be released due to the ongoing police investigation.
Word of the incident spread to shocked customers.
"I've been living out in this area for over 20 years. I haven't heard of anything like that before," says Mary Pressley.
Hundreds of people sounded off online, outraged by the theft.
"A lot of times, unfortunately, people sell them for money or they can be used as bait dogs for dog-fighting," Wohner said. "A lot of bad possibilities, so we just want to make sure that they're safe."
The group also plans to put a new procedure in place requiring people to give them an ID before looking at pets so that they can help prevent this from happening again.
