HELP: Two Glenville Therapy Dogs Still Missing Over a Week
Think of your pet and imagine if all of a sudden, they went missing and you had no idea where they ended up. Help this woman find two of the most important things in her life.
As sad as it is, we see pets go missing every so often shared on our Facebook pages but for some reason these two dogs have grabbed the heart of the Capital Region. Mary Ann Powers last saw her two dogs more than a week ago.
The two dogs, three-year-old Orso and year-old Lucia, were, according to the Daily Gazette, "put out on the morning...while a visiting nurse performed a medical procedure." The dogs were put outside to keep the area somewhat sterile but when she went to the door, the dogs weren't waiting to come in like they usually are.
They notified the Glenville police, reached out to as many media outlets as they could think of, but still no leads on where the dogs may be. They don't have official evidence that they were stolen but Powers has said that her dogs never go near the road and they did see a set a footprints. They're asking anyone for any information to contact the Schenectady County central dispatching center.
These dogs are not only a part of the Powers family but have been her therapy dogs since a surgery she had in 2017 to deal with post-traumatic stress disorder as well as through the surgeries following that initial one. She said that the dogs wouldn't normally go with a strange but may have been coaxed with food.
If found, the dogs have microchips but aren't GPS-equipped. Nobody has seen the dogs so if they were stolen, they've been hidden very well. A $500 reward is being offered for the dogs' return. If you have any information, call the Glenville police or call Powers at 518-424-9242.
