Thieves steal products used to groom therapy dogs
April 2, 2020
Thieves broke into a building at Wiregrass Angel House and stole supplies used to groom that agency’s therapy dogs.
“It’s despicable,” Executive Director Shelly Linderman told WTVY.
Items stolen include a dryer, shampoo, brushes, clippers, ottoman and also Christmas decorations that had been stored.
“What kind of people would do something like this? This is wrong,” Linderman said.
Wiregrass Angel House, a non-profit agency that assists families of violent crime victims, has three therapy dogs—Cole, Mandy, and True.
Among other things, those animals provide comfort to children who testify in court cases.
The theft was discovered Tuesday morning.
