A puppy with two pending adoptions was snatched from the Humane Society of York County over the weekend and remained missing Monday, according to the agency’s director.
Employees arriving at the Fort Mill-based shelter Sunday realized a dappled chihuahua mix puppy named Betsy was missing from her cage, director Becca Boronat said.
“She was here Saturday night, and when they came here and they start cleaning the dogs, they realized she was missing,” Boronat said.
It’s not known when the puppy was taken, but Boronat said it’s not likely she escaped because the cage was closed, and the two puppies in the cage with Betsy were still there. There were no signs of forced entry at the facility.
Boronat said Betsy had two pending adoptions, and officials were planning to conduct home visits for the potential adopters this week.
“We don’t know what happened,” she said. “The only thing we know is she was here Saturday night and she wasn’t Sunday morning.”
Betsy is 14 weeks old, gray and weighs about four pounds. She is microchipped.
Anyone with information on her whereabouts is asked to call Boronat at 803-665-1786 or Fort Mill Police at 803-547-2022.
