A $2000 reward is being offered to find Charlie; a pit bull that was stolen from the Dogs and Cats Antigua, when thieves broke into the sanctuary last week Friday.
Charlie, along with other items was stolen during the robbery.
Charlie is described as a beloved canine companion and a symbol of hope for the stray dogs of Antigua.
Spokesperson for Dogs and Cats of Antigua Joy Farrell said the burglary has left the staff and volunteers devastated, wondering how desperate someone must be to target a charity with so little, to begin with.
Dogs and Cats of Antigua expressed her anguish at the loss of Charlie said “The pain we feel comes not only from the material possessions stolen but from the emotional toll of losing a cherished member of our family. Charlie is not just a dog; he represents the resilience and compassion that we stand for.”
Farrell implored anyone with information about Charlie’s whereabouts to come forward and help bring him back home.
“We are desperate to have Charlie back, safe and sound. Our priority is his well-being, and we are willing to do whatever it takes to bring him back home,” Farrell added.
