A Happy Ending To A Very Disturbing Story

Dogs rescuedSometimes whatever we try to do, we can’t ensure the safety of our pets. This story is about the stolen van that contained seven precious pets  from a doggie daycare center in Chicago. The temperatures in Chicago were sub zero at the time  the van was taken and these animals were put in a very serious, life threatening situation. First, we didn’t know what the “sick” individuals that stole the van were going to do with the dogs. Authorities couldn’t locate the van and with the temperatures so low, the six dogs could have frozen to death in a very short period of time.

Fortunately, this story has a happy ending.

The silver van had been parked across the street from Daisy Bowers’ hair salon in the South Loop for more than a hour when someone in the shop noticed a dog sitting alone in the front seat.

“A dog was looking out the window to say, ‘Help me’ or ‘Come get me,’ ” Bowers said. “So I called 911, and within 10 or 15 minutes they were here and rescued the dogs.”

Seven dogs in all, stolen along with the van at gunpoint as a driver was taking them from Urban Out Sitters, a pet daycare center, to their owners around 3:50 p.m. Wednesday, police said. (Excerpt was taken from the Thursday edition of the Chicago Tribune)

Even if we do everything possible to keep our pets safe, there are still no guarantees. You must always remain vigilant and report any suspicious behavior that you notice.

Remember, your pets count!
