Police are investigating an unusual theft in eastern Kentucky.

Police say two men stole a variety of things including vaccines for dogs!

Authorities are looking for two men in connection with the theft at the Floyd County Animal Shelter.

The manager of the shelter says the thieves took animal treatment products, but they also took something else and it doesn't come with a price tag.

Police say the two men took a box of syringes, a bottle of worm remover, and puppy vaccines.

Kathy Mullins manages the Floyd County Animal Shelter.

She says what the thieves took is deadly.

“If ejected they will definitely have to be seen by an E.R. or it can cause death,” Mullins

Authorities say this is an open investigation and nobody has been arrested.

Mullins says this all started Tuesday morning as customers were already lined up outside the shelter.

It was busy and Kathy Mullins told two men to wait outside while she assisted other customers in the puppy room.

When she went back to check on the two men, they were gone and nearly three hundred dollars worth of animal treatment products were gone as well.

Mullins says the two men also took her purse laying on a chair in the animal shelter lobby.

Among the items inside, pictures of her two week old daughter, who died in 1994.

“There was a check uncashed we cancelled all that I don't even care about the credit cards,” Mullins said.

Mullins says all she wants returned are the pictures of her daughter.

Mullins says there is a hundred dollar reward for the return of the pictures with no questions asked.
