We are setting this up for our friend Cynthia Niswonger. She and her son, Neeko, stopped in Stockton California to use the restroom when returning home from a road trip. They left Sloan, Neeko's companion dog, in the car with the car running, doors locked and the AC on (she had the key fob-in her pocket). She kept eyes on the car until she quickly used the restroom. When she walked out with Neeko, she saw a man who had broken the window and was driving away. She ran and screamed for him to "leave my dog".  He got away with the car, Neeko’s iPad (which is his main form of communication as he is autistic), all their luggage and worst of all, their sweet dog Sloan. They found the car but not the dog. The local community has been helpful and put up a $200 reward for his return. Let's help Neeko get his dog back by increasing the reward amount.  If you cannot contribute monetarily, please pray. Any proceeds not used will be donated to animal shelters.
Key info: The vehicle was stolen from the McDonald's at 611 West Charter way in Stockton, CA, on Sunday at about 3 pm. The car headed away from I-5 west on Clay Street. It was recovered yesterday on America and 7th street. Sloan was likely dumped very nearby.
