Help Identify Two Jerks That Stole a Kitten in Critical Need of Medication From the Cleveland APL

Sometime around 4 p.m. on Wednesday, June 6th, a 5-foot tall caucasian female in her late tweens or early twenties and a red-headed male around the same age kidnapped a two-pound, brown tabby kitten with white paws from the Cleveland Animal Protective League.

The APL released photos of the surveillance video showing a couple along with three pre-teen boys leaving the building on foot with the 11-week-old kitten named Candace, stolen from the adoption floor.

According to Cleveland APL Director of Operations, Ayse Dunlap, “She’s on medication and it’s critical that we get her back; she’s already missed two days of her medicine.”

“We are requesting the community’s help in recovering this kitten,” said Dunlap. “We hope someone knows where this kitten is and will do the right thing and return her to the shelter so she can continue getting the medication she needs.”

As the group left on foot, it is possible that they may live in the proximity of the APL's Tremont location on 1729 Willey Avenue.

If you have any information, please call the Cleveland APL at 216-771-4616, ext. 0 or ext. 125.
