UPDATE - WHS/WARL: Stolen Kitten, Princess Jazzy Returned, Thanks to the Swift Actions of the Washington, DC, Metropolitan Police Department

WASHINGTON, D.C. –.  Three days after her disappearance from the Washington Humane Society-Washington Animal Rescue League (WHS/WARL) New York Avenue Adoption Center, three-month old kitten Princess Jazzy is safely in the caring hands of WHS/WARL staff.

“We are thrilled that Princess Jazzy is back with us safely thanks to the swift actions of the Metropolitan Police Department and alert WHS/WARL staff,” said Lisa LaFontaine, WHS/WARL President & CEO.   “This case is another example of how we will do everything possible to protect the animals in our community, regardless of their size, species or age.   We are especially relieved because Princess Jazzy was under medical treatment prior to the theft and she will now continue to get the care she needs as she awaits adoption into a responsible and loving home.”

WHS/WARL staff members on duty Saturday were able to record a license plate number from a vehicle leaving the Adoption Center shortly after the kitten was reported missing.  The Metropolitan Police Department tracked down Princess Jazzy with the license plate information and returned the kitten to the New York Avenue Adoption Center.

The incident remains under investigation.
