Heartbroken East Sacramento Woman Offers $1000 Reward for Penelope

Please share this post far and wide.

It’s a dog owner’s worst nightmare. A neighbor works on the fence and doesn’t alert you to the danger. Your dog is out the hole and possibly out of your life—forever.

This is how Lannette Werner-Tetz lost Penelope, a nine pound terrier, and a beloved pet of the family. “I pass flyers, hung 100s of posters and I drive, ride my bike and walk through East Sacramento hours a day looking for her,” she said.


Werner-Tetz checks the shelters each day and will not give up. She offers a $1000 reward for the return of Penelope—no questions asked.

“My hope is that she may have won the heart of a kind person who found her. She has a huge personality and is thrilled with attention,” Werner-Tetz said.

    Penelope is a very sweet and trusting girl. She is one of our patients at Sacramento Animal Hospital and there is nothing we would like more than to see here home with her Mom, if you happen to have found her and have been so kind as to have given her safe refuge, thank you! However, please contact her Mom who misses her so much. If you find or see her please contact Lannette, or if you prefer to remain anonymous call us at Sacramento Animal Hospital @ 916-451-7213
