Butte County Haven Humane Dog Adoption Center Burglarized, Donations Needed
CHICO, Calif. -

Butte Humane Society's Dog Adoption Center is trying to replace the donations stolen when a burglar broke into the building.

A burglar broke in over the weekend by shattering the front door window, then stealing a donation jar.

A photo on the Butte Humane Facebook page, shows the front door boarded up.

A donor has already offered to replace the door, but they still need to raise $900 dollars to get a new alarm system.

Donations came pouring in after the story first appeared on KRCR News Channel 7 at 11.  By Tuesday morning organizers said they'd already collected about $450.

The organization depends on donations to care for animals.

If you'd like to donate, do so at the Dog Adoption Center (2579 Fair St) during public hours (12-6pm) or donate online at   .
