KANSAS CITY, Mo. — An Unleashed Pet Rescue van was stolen on Tuesday morning with four dogs inside, according to police and the animal shelter.

Mission police said the van was recovered shortly after 9 a.m. at North 16th Street and Washington Boulevard in Kansas City, Kansas. The dogs were still in the van.

Earlier Tuesday, the blue van with pictures of pets on the side was in the parking lot of the Mission shelter. A female employee was loading dogs inside about 8 a.m. when it was taken.

Two adult dogs, described as a black three-legged dog and a gray and white spotted dog heading to surgery, were inside, along with two puppies.

The employee went inside the building to get more dogs, and when she came out, the van was gone.

Mission police say detectives were continuing to gather information.

This is a developing story and will be updated.
