ALERT! STOLEN RESCUE DOGS! Pictures follow information
Our rescue has experienced a great tragedy. Someone broke into the Cool School For Dogs Puppy Dog Day Care and stole many of the rescue dogs that were being cared for there. There were mostly Dobermans taken and 3 other smaller dogs, in total 13 dogs.
We have no idea how many of these missing dogs were actually stolen as there is a possibility that some may have escaped out of the door and gate since the dogs were kept out in the playroom together and only a few were kenneled at the time. They could have traveled a very long distance, especially if someone found one and took it home to help it by looking for an owner or new home thinking it was a stray. Some of these dogs have very important medical issues that need to be addressed, including two that must have special supplements before eating meals or they cannot keep weight on their bodies. Some have been with us for a long time due to medical needs and others were recently rescued.
If you find one of these dogs please, please return it to us. We are offering a substantial reward for any of our dogs that are returned - no questions asked, we just want them back. There are families that are in the process of adopting a few of them and we want to get them in these wonderful forever homes.
If you know ANY information about where these dogs might be, have been taken, etc. please share that information with the local police.

If the people who took the dogs read this - please take the dogs somewhere safe, leave them and then call and let us know where we can find them. Take them somewhere safe and let the police know where they are so we can get them. Please know that the information about these dogs has reached every corner of the United States . Rescue people are a close and tight group of people who save animals every day and this has outraged everyone that someone would take these dogs! Dog lovers are outraged and spreading the word. They are looking everywhere for them so just PLEASE get them back to us!
If you happen to find one of these dogs - we understand that some people may be frightened by a Doberman but all of these are very friendly. They may be frightened, unsure of where they are when they show up near you. You can nicely talk to them and each and every one of them will willingly work with you, or you can call me at 423-773-8113 and we will send a volunteer immediately to get the dog!
Some of these dogs need medication, some are ill or injured and recovering, please look at them - most have very distinct looks, markings, etc.
