BOSTON (CBS) – A Sterling animal shelter is now offering up to $2,000 for the safe return of two stolen puppies.

Four people have been arrested in connection with the robbery of nine puppies. Seven of the dogs have been found as of this past weekend.

Last Friday, a dead black and white puppy was found in Worcester, but officials are still investigating whether the dog is one of the missing ones.

“As more time goes by the more dire the situation becomes,” said Leigh Grady, Executive Director of Animal Shelter Inc. located in Sterling, MA.

Anyone with information is urged to call the Sterling Police Department at 978-422-7331 or Animal Shelter, Inc. of Sterling at 978-422-8585.

    Sylvia Ortiz, 22 of Worcester is not enough. Please publish more names of all 4 potential dog fighters. They need to be exposed as LESS THAN ANIMALS and crated in jail. the public must be made aware of who they are and where they live.

    Sylvia works at Walmart off of 146 in Worcester, well hopefully they have fired her by now. I will be there making a scene if she still works there she also has a kid, DSS needs to take that kid away from her she is no kind of mother. As for the dead puppy it was found behind Diamond on Park Ave, which scares me because I live near there and have 2 dogs of my own, it was serverly abused, they are supposed to be finger printing the box it was found in. I hope they find these monsters before I do, so help me god. They will not live another day.
