    The Washington Humane Society (WHS) is offering a reward for the safe return of a kitten stolen from an adoption center.

    Callista, an 8-week-old kitten, disappeared Sunday afternoon from the Washington Humane Society Adoption Center on New York Avenue NE, WHS says.

    “It’s hard to believe someone would stoop so low and do this” said WHS Vice President of External Affairs Scott Giacoppo in a statement. “Our adoption process is so easy, it only takes a few minutes and in the end your pet is completely vaccinated, spayed or neutered and you have a long-term relationship with our organization in case you ever need help."

    Callista disappeared during an adoption event, The Washington Post reports.

    The organization is offering a $1,000 reward for Callista's safe return and the suspect's identity.

    Anyone with information is asked to call 1-202-576-6664.
