Two, 6-week-old boxer puppies are back with their mother after they were stolen from the Humane Society of the Nature Coast. The puppies were returned after more than 1,500 people shared surveillance video of theft on social media.

Humane Society of the Nature Coast asked its followers to share the video of a man stealing the two female puppies from the shelter. Surveillance cameras recorded the man inside the Brooksville animal shelter early Thursday morning.

The video showed the man ruffling through items at the shelter. He stole the puppies and what appeared to be supplies to care for the stolen puppies.

On Friday morning, the HSNC said that the puppies had been returned by a Good Samaritan around 8:30 a.m.

The Hernando County Sheriffs Office is investigating the case. If you have information that can help investigators, call the sheriff’s office.

The Humane Society of the Nature Coast is located at 7224 Mobley Rd. in Brooksville.
