KILLINGLY — State police said Sunday they are investigating the overnight theft of a dog from the animal shelter in Dayville.
Police said someone cut a lock at the Northeast Connecticut Council of Governments animal shelter at 125 Putnam Pike. One dog was taken and another was set free to roam, police said. The freed dog later was recovered.
The stolen dog is a three-year-old pit bull and rottweiler mix named Ruby, police said. The dog is brown and black and weighs between 40 and 45 pounds, police said.
It’s the second time a dog was taken this year from the shelter. A pit bull was stolen in May and later recovered.
Anyone with knowledge of the dog’s location is asked to call Troop D at (860) 779-4900 or NECCOG at (860) 774-1253.
