The Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office seeks the public’s help in locating three dogs stolen from a local animal rescue.

On Dec. 8, 2018, at about 12 p.m., Humboldt County Sheriff’s deputies were dispatched to Miranda’s Rescue, located on the 1600 block of Sandy Prairie Road in Fortuna, for the report of three dogs stolen from their kennels.

The dogs are described as the following:
o One brindle colored Pitbull mix named Lucy, 1.5 years old, weighing approximately 55 pounds

o Two black and brown Rottweiler/Mastiff mix puppies, 4 months old, weighing approximately 40 pounds

According to shelter staff, due to medical care costs covered for the animals, the dogs would have been adopted out for approximately $400 each.
