Dogs and cash stolen in animal shelter break-in
Despite fundraising efforts throughout the year for the animal shelter, it still seems to always be running on empty.
And today the shelter has hit rock bottom just days before Christmas.
At least twelve hundred dollars,several computers and three dogs are now missing after the Laredo animal shelter is broken into over night.
Shelter representatives say the thieves took computers, I-pods, and other personal items from the offices and a scale used to weigh the animals that costs about $500.
Over a thousand dollars in donations and fees were also stolen.
Three dogs including a white pit bull puppy were also taken.
The shelter manager hopes those who may have taken the puppy will find it in their heart to return her.

“Being this close to Christmas it's pretty bad that you’re doing what you’re doing to a non profit organization but also this puppy needs special care by us, not someone in the general public.”
The puppy is a white pit bull and is about three months old.
She is missing some fur on her tail and has a neurological problem that requires veterinary supervision.
Anyone with information is asked to contact police.
