yesterday an auction was held at a local hotel for the spca so Carol wasn't in her office at all, the night staff goes in through the back door to feed and walk the animals. How could anyone steal from the spca!!!




February 14, 2011 It could have been so much worse. The local O.S.P.C.A. was broken into sometime between 4 p.m. yesterday and 8 a.m. this morning. The O.S.P.C.A.'s Carol Link says those responsible broke through the windows of her office, ransacking it. She says the suspect(s) stole $2,000. Despite the heartbreaking loss, Link tells TheCornwallDaily.com it could have been so much worse. (Play Audio) Link says every cent the S.P.C.A. raises is crucial for its operation. She says $2,000 may not seem like a lot of money, but when you're faced with vet bills as well as food and care costs on a constant basis, it adds up. Thankfully, none of the animals in the building were harmed. Link says the thieves didn't leave her office, as they entered and exited through the windows they broke. Link says operations will carry on as usual, despite the unsettling events. She says local police have been notified of the theft and they're asking anyone with information about the break-in to come forward.
