One of the dogs appeared to have been shot, and another had been reported as a lost dog by its owner.

"I can't stress enough. Please stay with your animals. Don't let them out of your sight. Have them on a leash. Somebody is going around and taking animals and God knows doing what with them."
~ Marie Grimm, A.W.S.O.M.

Police are investigating if there is any connection between these new discoveries and Destiny, currently in the care of A.W.S.O.M, and the small dog found dead in a plastic bag in the woods near the shelter in Stroudsburg on December 1.

Anyone with information, or who sees anything suspicious, is urged to call the police at (570) 421-6800.
