Although he was wearing two collars, the SPCA said Capo had no identification, so they appealed to the public for help getting him back where he belongs.

“He is very friendly, and we believe someone must be missing him,” read a post on the SPCA’s Facebook page.

Within hours of Capo’s picture being posted, the SPCA announced they had successfully located his owners and he would be heading home.
