LOGANSPORT, Ind. - Police were investigating after the Cass County Humane Society was burglarized over the weekend.
Employees discovered Monday morning that the shelter had been broken into and vandalized. Money, electronics and medication were reported missing.
"When I came in I noticed right away my door was open and it's always locked when I leave and there was a TV that sat on this desk over here and it's gone," executive director Lisa Clark said.
Shelter officials said they are at full capacity and strapped for funding, which is why they were shocked someone would steal the resources they use to help animals.
Clark said the money collected from recent adoptions was gone. The stolen money would have helped pay for housing and medication needs for the animals.
The shelter had several security cameras to protect the animals and supplies, but police feared the video evidence was lost after the burglar ripped out the hard drive.
"I think that it was someone who knew exactly where to go. Possibly an ex-employee," Clark said.
The shelter’s digital camera and a laptop were also taken during the burglary. Clark said that camera was a very important tool she used to take pictures of the animals to find them forever homes.
Employees said a few dogs were let out during the incident but were not injured.
Clark said the break-in has left them in a bind and the shelter could really use donations of cat litter, extra volunteers and of course -- loving homes for the animals.
