The perpetrator, caught on camera, is a Hispanic male in his late teens to early twenties who has orange hair and dresses in women’s clothing. We are concerned about Iris’ well-being and are offering a $500 reward to anyone with information leading to her return and an arrest. Iris was born at our shelter to her mother who was surrendered to us in late stage pregnancy.
