Two suspects caught on surveillance video broke into the building on Sept. 3 and took three American bullies with them.

Morse is concerned about the dogs’ safety, two of which recently had surgery and need follow-up care. Surveillance footage shows surgical cones have been removed from the dogs.

“These dogs need medical care if they tear a seam,” Morse said. “I worry about their well-being and welfare, I worry about retaliation against staff, I worry that it will happen again. I am just amazed at the audacity of it.”
