Stolen puppies returned to their shelter

A pair of puppies who were snatched from an animal shelter are finally back home, The Middleton Press reports.

According to the news source, it was just last week that two 12-week-old dogs, a Black Labrador and a shepherd-chow mix, were discovered missing from their cages at The Animal Haven in North Haven, Connecticut. After a careful inspection, employees reportedly noticed that the locks had been busted open and they were dealing with a possible break-in.

Animal shelter officials called the police, who soon put their best men in the force on the job of bringing the pups back home. It was only a few days later that they pinned down a 20-year-old man and woman, who were seen with the animals.

"I'm so relieved that the North Haven Police Department and animal control officer found the puppies," Animal Haven President Liz Gallagher told the news outlet. "They did a fantastic job in determining who stole them."

According to its website, The Animal Haven is a no-kill shelter dedicated to helping homeless pets in the New Haven area. They have placed countless dogs and cats in homes throughout the past 60 years.
