SPCA offers reward for safe return of stolen kitten
RICHMOND, Va. (WWBT) - The Richmond SPCA is offering a $1,000 reward for the safe return of a kitten stolen from their adoption center.
2-month-old Daenerys was taken from the Richmond SPCA’s adoption center on Friday evening. She is spayed and microchipped.
“Someone had turned her habitat around and opened the latch and removed her,” Richmond SPCA Communications Director Tabitha Treloar said. “The adoption center was very busy and we had a waiting list. She’s been missing ever since.”
The SPCA stated on Facebook that Daenerys was treated for lungworms and under continued medical observation before she was taken.
“A proper adoption would have included medical advice and sending her home with remaining medications,” the humane center said. “This is a really vulnerable age of about 2 months old and she really needed that additional veterinary care.”
Both Richmond Police and RACC have been notified of the theft.
As for leads, some teens were seen in the adoption center near Daenerys’s habitat that evening, and the SPCA would like to talk with them. The group consisted of four boys and one girl with red hair.
“Daenerys is very playful, very exuberant and energetic,” Treloar said. “We just really hope that whoever has her will do the right thing.”
