LIHUE, Hawaii - Police in Hawaii are looking for cat burglars who absconded with six dogs from a Humane Society shelter.

Police said in a statement that three mixed breed pit bulls, two Airedale terriers and a 2-month-old lab mix named Arianna, were taken from the shelter on Kauai sometime between Saturday night and Sunday morning.

Police say the thieves cut a lock off a gate to get into the shelter and make off with the furry friends. The puppy named Arianna has a microchip implanted, according to the Humane Society.

The Humane Society is offering a reward of up to $5,000 for the tips that lead to an arrest and conviction.
