SAN ANTONIO – A pair of Chihuahuas that were allegedly stolen from the San Antonio Humane Society on Saturday afternoon were returned to the shelter Sunday after shelter staff offered a no-questions-asked return policy.

The animal rescue posted to Facebook Saturday night stating two of its dogs, Kirsten and Marco, had been taken by the two women. Shortly after asking the public for help identifying the women suspected, tips poured in and the women were identified.

The dogs were returned after the shelter's president and CEO, Nancy F. May, said Sunday that they were willing to take the dogs back, no questions asked, if the dogs were returned immediately.

"We at the San Antonio Humane Society have received multiple tips and now know the identities of the two ladies featured in the video footage from 9-29-18," May said in an emailed statement Sunday. "They were not authorized to walk out with our Chihuahuas and we ask that you PLEASE return Marco and Kirsten immediately before further steps will be taken. No questions will be asked and no arrests will be made at this time."
