The shelter also said the days before the break-in were “very successful for adoptions and donations and all of those fees were stolen.”

The front desk donation box was also taken.

The shelter said, while none of the shelter animals were harmed, their office dog, Roscoe T, was in the office when it happened and was emotionally traumatized for a couple of days but is now feeling like his old self again.

The shelter also thanked Captain Chris Quire with the Frankfort Police Department for donating $500 to help make up the loss.
