Central Minnesota Animal Care and Control helps pets that have been abused or abandoned in and around St. Cloud but now they are in need of help themselves after a break-in. Computers and cash were not touched while several cats are missing leaving Lisa Tenter to believe whoever broke in is a pet owner who is upset with animal control.
"It's a shame there are people that have anger issues that would take them out on an animal," Tenter of the center said. "We didn't take their animal, we just help them and take care of them."
Over the years, the shelter has had their share of threats, but the break-in is a first. Now with all the windows boarded up, Tenter is concerned about the heating bill will go through the roof. She also believes the police will catch the cat burglar that unfortunately lives up to the name.
"To get broken into is one thing, but to have this much damage for no reason is a totally different situation," Tenter said.
According to Tenter, it could take three weeks to get new windows and that anyone wishing to help can send donations to the following address:
