GRANITE CITY, Ill. (KMOX) – Pound Pets Incorporated in Granite City is scrambling to find funds to feed and take care of their rescue animals.

The shelter was burglarized Friday night, and while no animals were hurt, the burglar made off with $1,000.

Deb Crisswell is president of Pound Pets, “We’re down to 24 cats that need adopted or rescued because their hold times are up. We’re holding onto them as long as we have space. We’d like to free up as many cages as we can. We currently have three dogs in the back on stray hold.”

A $500 reward is being offered for information on the burglary.

Crisswell says the shelter is in desperate need of cat food and kitty litter, in addition to looking for adoptive pet parents.
