Saturday was a sad day for the animals of Tampa, Florida.
The staff at the Animal Coalition of Tampa Bay were wakened early last Saturday to learn their low-cost spay/neuter and vaccination clinic had burned. The fire was intentionally set, possibly to cover the theft of petty cash from the register as well as from a donation box on the counter.
The worst part? The three cats that lived at the clinic- Jazz, Boy, and Mama, died in the fire.
Fortunately a pit bull survived.
This clinic spays and neuters animals to avoid euthanasia, and provides the service for ferals as well as family pets.
And if you live in the Tampa area and have any information regarding the crime, please report it to law enforcement. The perpetrators of this crime should not be allowed to get away with what they’ve done.
