Stolen puppies returned to rescue organization

GREENVILLE, N.C. (WNCT) – The puppies stolen from a Greenville pet adoption event in October were safely returned.

That’s according to the adoption organization, Adoptable Companions.

A volunteer with the organization posted an update on Facebook late Thursday evening, adding both puppies are safe and in good health. She contacted 9 On Your Side Friday morning and noted the incident appeared to be a miscommunication.

The adoption agency does not want to press charges against the suspect, who was accused of stealing them, so Greenville police say the case is closed.

The puppies were up for adoption last month outside Petsmart when they were stolen.

Original Story:

An eastern North Carolina pet adoption organization says two dogs were stolen from one of its events.

According to police records, two dogs were reported stolen from a Greenville pet store on Oct. 29th.

According to Adoptable Companions, the dogs were stolen at one of the rescue organization’s adoption events at PetSmart.

Police records show the two dogs stolen include a 20-week-old tan and white Dachshund Mix and 10-week-old black and white Jack Russell Terrier.

As precaution, Adoptable Companions has added more volunteers for its adoption events in hopes of  preventing other dogs from being taken.
