N.J. puppy abduction ends with a ‘miracle’ discovery
Nov. 11, 2019
A puppy that went missing from a New Jersey animal shelter was found Sunday in a pet store bathroom, ending a strange journey that first began in a Georgia dumpster.
Phoenix, a 12-week-old female puppy, was found at PetSmart in Berlin one day after she was taken from the Voorhees Animal Orphanage, according to a Facebook live video posted by the orphanage.
“This is a miracle,” a representative from the orphanage said in the video. “We are thrilled.”
A black and fluffy brown long-haired mix breed, Phoenix and her siblings had been left in a dumpster in Georgia before the Voorhees Animal Orphanage connected with a shelter there to rescue them.
On Saturday, shelter employees took Phoenix’s brother out of her kennel around 12:20 p.m. when she was still inside. They checked five minutes later and she was missing, kennel manager Laurie Ballard.
The lock was taken off and on the ground, Ballard said.
Phoenix had been spayed Friday and was still on pain medication with sutures that were still healing, Ballard said.
“We’re asking that she is returned safely and unharmed,” Ballard said Saturday.
