BAINBRIDGE, GA (WALB) -

A Bainbridge animal shelter needs your help to find two stolen Pit Bulls. Someone cut into outdoor cages and made off with the dogs Friday night.

Humane Society President Susan Ralph says someone cut the fence and stole two pit-bull dogs named Douglas and Carmel. She's concerned the hole is so small it may have cut the dogs.

"The cut, the opening wasn't that large, I don't know how the animals got out unless they tempted them with meat," said Susan Ralph, Humane Society President.

She has another concern. She worries the people who stole the pit bulls are using them for dog fighting. 

Ralph added, "I hope they're in a good place I don't want them to be in a fighting situation or someone hurting them."

Ralph says the pit-bulls were stolen Friday evening around 7:00 pm. There was a baseball game when they were taken.

"We hope that someone at the ball field saw something and will come forward and tell us," said Ralph. "Maybe they saw a vehicle out of place or saw activity here."

The surveillance video shows two people wearing white hoodies walking toward the dog cases right around the same time the dogs were stolen.

Police believe these two people could be the pit-bull thieves. Ralph says they're doing whatever they can to make sure this doesn't happen again.

"We're looking at ideas to try to make this more secure, more lighting in areas where the public can't access," said Ralph.

The Humane Society is offering a reward of more than $1,000 that leads to an arrest or safe return of the dogs.

If you have any information that could help call the Humane Society at 229-246-0101 or your local law enforcement.
