The MSPCA reported Friday that a a five-year-old Beagle named “Pete” was stolen from the organization’s Nevins Farm Adoption Center in Methuen Thursday, minutes before his new adopter was to take him home.

According to MSPCA spokesman Rob Halpin, Pete was taken sometime between 1 p.m. and 5 p.m. Halpin said the dog is mostly white, black, and brown and was last seen wearing a red collar.

The MSPCA has alerted the Methuen Police Department and will engage Granite State Dog Recovery, a volunteer group that uses high-tech equipment and expert search teams to locate lost or stolen animals.

Halpin said Pete has a microchip tracking device and Mike Keiley, MSPCA-Nevins farm director, has reported him stolen to Home Again, the company that manages Pete’s microchip.  The MSPCA will be notified if Pete’s microchip is scanned by a veterinarian or an animal control officer.

There are no leads at this point and the MSPCA is asking for the public’s help in finding Pete.  The MSPCA does not plan to press charges – the person who has him can bring him back no questions asked, so long as he is safe an unharmed, Halpin said.

Anyone with information is asked to e-mail Keiley direction at mkeiley@mspca.org.
