A recent break-in at the Susanville animal shelter has caused a big outcry!
3 Vandals broke into a pet animal shelter early Wednesday morning, dirtying the walls with graffiti, damaging equipment and kidnapping six cats.
The Shelter workers have since been worried about the felines’ fate. “We can clean up the mess,” said Animal Cotnrol Supervisor Judge Walesch, “but we worry about the cats, if they are being cared for. I can’t imagine someone who vandalizes an animal shelter actually loving the cats or caring for them. I hope that they are alright and not being ill used.”
So far, one adult cat was recovered during the investigation and Thursday night the two young kittens were recovered at the home of one of the pre-teen girls arrrested in the case.
They are reportedly in good health and being bottle raised at a foster home. Their mother and two other adult cats are still missing.
Sadly, two cats were injured in the rampage. One suffered eye burns from something the vandals threw around the office. The other, an elderly cat, who had been the shelter’s mascot and internet ambassador was badly traumatized by the incident and had to be euthanized.
The damage down to the shelter is estimated to be many thousands of dollars.
The two pre-teen girls responsible for the damage are being held in juvenile hall on burglary and animal cruelty charges.
Along with the girls, a 35 year old woman has also been arrested as she helped them rob the place and destroy it.

How terrible that is! The poor cats and dogs, the poor shelter!
How could ANYONE do such a MEAN thing to such poor little creatures! Destroying a shelter where poor beaten and starving cats and dogs find a refuge, kidnapping six cats and doing I don’t know what to them.
What is this world coming to?
That there can be such mean people on this planet is simply shocking! They are either demented or simply cold hearted and cruel!
