Washington, DC - $1,000 Reward for Information Leading to Arrest and Conviction of Person(s) Responsible for the Theft of a 3-Month-Old Kitten from a Local Animal Shelter (WHS/WARL)

Washington, DC - A three-month old female, brown tabby kitten named Princess Jazzy was stolen from the Washington Humane Society-Washington Animal Rescue League (WHS/WARL) Adoption Center on New York Ave in NE Saturday afternoon. WHS/WARL is offering a $1,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person or persons responsible for the theft.

“It is hard to believe that someone would commit such a crime,” states Scott Giacoppo, Chief Community Welfare Officer for WHS/WARL.  “In addition to breaking the law, they have put this kitten’s health in jeopardy by circumventing our easy adoption process, and denying the kitten needed medical care.”

WHS/WARL is now appealing to the public to help get Princess Jazzy back to the Adoption Center so that she can receive all the medical procedures that go into the adoption process and to ensure that the family that takes her fully understands her needs. Anyone with information is urged to call 1- 202-576-6664.
