PHOENIX (AP) - Authorities say three sick puppies have been stolen from their kennels at a Phoenix shelter.

The Arizona Animal Welfare League says the 10-week-old cattle dog mixes were held at the shelter for upper respiratory infections. Security cameras show two men and woman enter a secure area and leave with the puppies on Sunday night.

AAWL President Judith Gardner says Yuma, Bynes and Simpson need to be returned to the shelter as soon as possible so they can receive the rest of their medications. Gardner says the organization won’t press charges if the puppies are returned, but otherwise intends to work with police to identify the thieves and press charges.

Communications Director Michael Morefield calls it “extremely disheartening” that someone would steal sick puppies from a non-profit, no-kill animal shelter.
