Salem Police were called to The Dog Bark around 2:30 a.m. Wednesday, because burglars had released the dogs.
Responding officers arrived to find a shattered window and an open door. Nearly a dozen of the 26 dogs boarded at the facility escaped outside.
“The kennels were open and dogs were roaming the neighborhood,” said Lieutenant Treven Upkes, department public information officer. “Thankfully, passersby stopped and helped officers retrieve all but three dogs.”
Three of the dogs were still at large. Two of those dogs have been found. The name of the remaining dog that's missing is Kalua.
Anyone sighting the animals can contact Dog Bark directly at 503-883-1452. Anyone with information regarding the burglary should contact the Salem Police Tips line at 503-588-8477.
