Police: Dog Stolen from Aquebogue Puppy Store

The following information was supplied by the Riverhead Town Police Department. A criminal charge is only an accusation and does not indicate guilt.

Jasmine Ann Stephens, 19, of East Hampton, was arrested with a 17-year-old East Hampton teen on Feb. 1 on grand larceny charges after they allegedly stole a $2,500 dog from in Aquebogue.

According to reports, the owner of the shop reported to police that two females took the dog from the Route 25 shop without paying for it and fled in a car westbound on Route 25. The car was reportedly stopped on Osborn Avenue near Pulaski Street. They were transported to police headquarters, the two were released on $50 bail each, and the dog was returned.

I know that Talmadge has pet adoption days on Saturdays. Also SAVES Spay Alter Neuter Vaccinate Every Stray has cats and kittens that are adoptable at PETCO.What I'd love is a dog park in downtown vicinity of Riverhead. And I'd love an indoor recreation zone where you could bring your pets. I've got my one Snowball, (read above) and I have a stray who has decided to become an indoor cat, Peekaboo, and two Ferrets which my granddaughter gifted me with when she moved out of State in November, Metia ( Nosey), and Bongo (Lazy).I'd love to have an indoor place to bring my animal family. It would be great do have both next to each other.

And you could have homeless pets there too, looking for their forever home. It would be great to offer respite for when people are ill and can't care for their pets also. And busineses like Petco, and Animal friendly hotels could advertise, as well as veterinarians. I wish Bideawee could do something like this in Riverhead. A place where a person with an animal family could go and have a cup of coffee, even if, due to DOH rules, you have to bring your own. Could have a hot and cold water dispenser. A toaster oven. Could be like a club. Could bring the school kids in for classes. And in Riverhead.

>> If they did come from puupy mills at least now they have loving homes. PLEASE get real. Do not think we can buy our way out of the problem. If you buy a pouppy from a mill you are supporting puppy mills. The protection of one animal should not be at the cost of many others.

There are too many dogs needing homes from shelters. We found ours 3 years ago. We nursed him back to health and he is the most loving and loyal dog. I would adopt more if I had the time. I almost took one home from Kent Animal shelter at the Polish Festival a couple of weeks ago. Please stop buying from puppy stores and give the shelter dogs (and cats) a chance.
