"It is quite heart-breaking that someone would break in and steal," said Juli Reed with HSCC. "It is heart-breaking that somebody would take advantage of us and the animals."

When Humane Society staff members arrived at the facility on 20th Avenue Southeast on Tuesday morning, they immediately saw signs of a break-in.
