On February 5, the rescue agency reached out to Facebook fans with a request for help:

PLEASE SHARE and help bring Teddy home! Someone broke into our shelter early on Saturday morning and stole him right out of his kennel. Teddy is a 10 week old black (or a very dark gray) Border Collie/Pit Mix with a little white spot on his chest and needs medication.

The priority for Lifeline Puppy Rescue is to get Teddy back, safe and sound.

Anyone with information about this crime, or Teddy’s whereabouts, is asked to call 303-655-9696 or the local authorities.

    Sad news. Hoping Teddy will be found and how unfortunate that the rescue facility’s cash was stolen which they desperately need to support their group

    Absolutely STUPID to leave money in a rescue! I can’t believe how many rescue’s are run by good hearted but truly unprofessional people. THIS situation is not rare! Volunteers and employees alike have been paid off to slip pitbulls out of shelters for big money, take donated food because they feel entitled to do so, etc. Shelters are notoriously underfunded and therefore can’t afford security cameras or guards. SHELTERS MUST PROTECT THEMSELVES! That is just the way it is. The facts do not make it right, the facts are just the facts.
