SF SPCA is offering a $500 reward for the recovery of James, a puppy stolen from the Adoption Center.

James, a mixed breed puppy, was stolen from the SF SPCA Adoption Center on Tuesday, November 8.

James, an 8-week-old puppy, was stolen from the San Francisco SPCA's Adoption Center at approximately 3:45 pm on Tuesday, November 8. The Adoption Center’s staff members are very concerned for James' well-being and are eager to have him back at the SF SPCA.

Case #110-902-526 was filed with the San Francisco Police Department, and the Mission District Station is handling the investigation. The SF SPCA has video footage of the alleged criminals, who can be described as a Latino couple in their mid-30s who were accompanied by a child. The man is approximately 5' 7", heavy-set, with spiky black hair and a short beard. The woman was approximately 5' 6", thin, with dark hair. They were accompanied by a 4-6 year-old boy with dark hair. The group was driving an older white sedan, possibly a Honda Accord or Toyota Camry.

James is a light brown and white mixed breed puppy. He was scheduled to go home with his new adoptive family the evening of the day he was stolen. He has been neutered and his microchip number is 982000167765783.

The SF SPCA is offering a $500 reward for James' safe return. We have photos of the abduction. We urge anyone with information to call the SF SPCA at (646) 496-5925.
