Evansville Animal Care and Control needs your help. They had an akita puppy stolen from them today. The puppy was on a stray hold so was not able to be adopted, but had already been pre-adopted by a family that wanted him if no one claimed him.  The family is devastated.

Please keep an eye out, if you see this puppy out, or if you see any posts online of people selling this puppy, let the police know immediately.
