Stolen Dog – reward!

Rocky has been STOLEN from New Milford Animal Welfare Society in New Milford CT — this is a no-kill, amazing shelter partner of ours.  PLEASE keep your eyes peeled and share this on your FB page – he has a skin condition and as a pit, he is “high risk” for suffering a bad fate.  🙁
