A van full of show dogs was stolen from the parking lot of an In-N-Out fast food restaurant in Redding, California, and there is now a huge reward for their safe return. According to KRCTV News, there were 14 show dogs inside of a white cargo van when opportunistic thieves made their move.
What happened to the dogs?
The dogs were being transported by a handler from Seattle, Washington to Vallejo, California. On Wednesday, driver Tony Carter made a stop at the fast food restaurant and he left the vehicle running to keep the dogs inside cool. During a brief period of time, the thief stole the cargo van from the parking lot. The driver has stated that he doesn’t believe that the thief knew that there were dogs inside because the van does not have windows.
The huge reward
The reward has climbed to $30,000 for the safe return of the missing show dogs. Anyone who spots the white cargo van, described below, is asked to reach out to the authorities:
A white 2018 Dodge ProMaster Cargo Van with Washington license plate number BKD2048. The van has Seattle Seahawks sticker on the back and a number 12 in the rear window.
According to the Redding Police Department, rat terriers, yellow labs, and rottweilers are among the breeds of dogs who are missing.
Please contact 530-225-4200 if you have any information regarding the whereabouts of this vehicle or the show dogs.
