CHARLES CITY (KWWL) -

Charles City Police are calling it a "dog-napping" after a pit bull was stolen out of a shelter's kennel over the weekend.

Officials at PAWS Humane Society in Charles City are asking for the public's help in tracking down Pete, a pit bull that was stolen from the shelter.

Jeff Nordman from the shelter said the 2-year-old pit bull was stolen sometime after 5:00 p.m. on Saturday, July 5th but before 6:30 a.m. on Sunday, July 6th.

He said a padlock on his outdoor kennel was snipped with bolt cutters.

"We want desperately to get him back so we can help him find his forever home," he said.

Pete is described as a friendly, neutered male pit bull mix, weighing approximately 57 pounds.

Anyone with information is asked to call Charles City Police at (641) 228 3366 or the PAWS Humane Society at (641) 257-0766.
