They are hopeful that someone knows something and in the meantime, they are implementing new protocols regarding security systems and animal safety protocols.

The sweet dog was recently trimmed, has staple sutures on his shoulder, and weighs around 32 pounds. Anyone with information about Jasper, who took him, or his whereabouts is asked to call the Providence Police Department at 401-272-3121.
