An Australian Shepherd is missing, and two other dogs are believed to have been stolen after someone broke into the Animal Welfare Coalition’s shelter.

Tina Holguin, an Animal Welfare Coalition director, told the Optic the break-in occurred sometime between 8 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 17 and 7:45 a.m. Monday, Nov. 18. The break-in and the missing dogs were discovered when workers arrived Monday morning to find several dogs running loose in the yard.

“We initially thought someone had dumped them over our gate,” Holguin said. “But when they started their morning cleaning process, they realized that nine of our kennels had been cut open with wire cutters.”
