MOBILE, Alabama -

Less than 24 hours after 50 dogs were seized from a home in Wilmer, the calls started coming in to the Mobile County Animal Shelter. Dozens of people were looking for their stolen animals.

"I went in there and looked at every dog, there is no small yorkie at all," said one woman.

She was hoping to find her missing dog but had no luck when she showed up to the shelter on Saturday.

"You get your hopes up and you find out that your dogs not here, it's very frustrating," she said.

But, others were lucky.

"We found her this is her when she was two she looks different but this is a scar that identifies her," said Tiffany Cash, who was reunited with her missing dog.

She wasn't alone. Others were also reunited with their pets Saturday afternoon.

"Our claim is set, so the dog isn't going anywhere, it's not going to be put to sleep, we don't have to worry about that and she's going to great here until they release them and hopefully that won't be long," said a woman.

If you have reason to believe that your dog was stolen, you're asked to contact the Mobile County Animal Shelter.
