UNION SQUARE — A  kitten was stolen Friday from a cat rescue and adoption program ran at the Petco store in Union Square, a representative for KittyKind told PIX11.

Brooke Devins, a volunteer for KittyKind, said the 12-week-old kitten, named Sage, was stolen around 2 p.m. from the group’s Petco location, and they are desperately trying to locate the furry friend.

KittyKind is a no-kill, all-volunteer cat rescue and adoption group.

On Sunday, KittyKind said they are offering a $1,000 reward, no questions asked, for the safe return of the kitten.

According to Devins, photos on a KittyKind Facebook post, seen below, are of the alleged thief caught on Petco’s security camera, and the missing kitten.
