Help Family Find Their Stolen Puppy Dash

53608130_1609291421821371_r.jpegThe Pawluk family returned home on December 10, 2020 after Chelsea went to pick her kids up from school to find that their puppy Dash had been stolen.  Everyone was devastated but hopeful that he may be returned quickly.  Chelsea had taken out a personal loan to purchase him for $2000 as an early Christmas gift for the kids.  They had only moved into their house a few weeks prior and everyone was having some struggles adjusting to the new location, an hour from family and friends.  Chelsea felt that bringing home a family pet would boost everyone’s happiness as they settled in.

As a single mother of four, Chelsea doesn’t have the budget required to offer a reward for Dash’s safe return (Absolutely no questions asked if he is returned) but after a month of him being missing, their hopes are starting to diminish.  They’ve spent countless hours driving throughout the Okanagan to follow up on leads and possible sightings to no avail.  It was already a struggle with the loan payment on top of their bills but now with Dash gone it’s very bittersweet.  We are hoping to raise money to help pay off the loan and to lighten the burden of this payment for the family as well as to be able to offer a reward for Dash’s return  

Although hard to think about now, we’d also like to help them in the future to have enough money to get another family pet.  There are a few rescue groups in the Okanagan that they would like to support, but the adoption fees are still $450+

All money raised above and beyond will be donated to the Kelowna SPCA  

Any information on Dash can be reported to the Lake Country RCMP @ 250-766-2288 (non emergency) or for anonymous tips can be reported to Crime Stoppers Canada

The family would also like to hire Pet Searchers Canada but the expensive is also over $1000 and out of their budget.  Thank you to everyone for their help during this sad time.  Everyone is praying that Dash is safe and being well looked after until he returned to  his family who misses him dearly  

Dash is a brown Long Haired Chihuahua.  He was 10 weeks when stolen.  His ears will be standing up now with slightly longer fur. He was 3lbs at the time of the theft.  Due tohis small size he requires special care that he does not go into hypoglycaemic shock.  He is very friendly and loving. ❤️
