Three puppies have been stolen from the Anderson County PAWS shelter, and the sheriff's office is looking the 4 people who were recorded on surveillance video leaving with the puppies, according to an article posted on the FoxCarolina website today.
The incident occurred last week, when two men and two women came into the shelter, and looked at the puppies. The surveillance video shows them walking out with the puppies in their arms.
One of the puppies was already spoken for; the other two were still available for adoption. The pups are all black and white mixed breed puppies.
The group left the building without doing the adoption paperwork and without being approved for adoption, and did not pay the adoption fees for the puppies either.
According to the Sheriff's department, the group left in a white car with a black hood. The license plate number is not known.
PAWS and the Sheriff's office are requesting that anyone with information on these puppies or any of the four people who are shown in the attached photos please call the Anderson County Sheriff's Office at 864-260-4400 or Crime Stoppers at 888-CRIME-SC.
