shooting continues. the humane society of noble county works hard every day to feed and care for the animals that are waiting on their forever home. part of that work is collecting cans for recycling, but now they have reason to believe someone is stealing those cans. fox 55's abby jackson explains. )when this trailer is full of cans, it can bring in an average of 200 dollars a month for the humane society of noble county. "we take them, we recycle them, and we use the money to help support the shelter. we have a lot of people that bring a lot of cans to us. we usually have to have it emptied maybe once or twice a month, we get that many cans." )but julie handshoe says recently some bags have gone missing from inside the trailer.. and she believes someone is stealing them. "i want to say within the last two months we've kind of noticed that some cans will come up missing, and i'm like, who would want to take cans from the shelter?" )for a while they kept the trailer unlocked to allow donations to come in freely at any hour. "i just wish they would stop because they don't realize how much money they're taking from us, and we're a non-profit organization. we rely on every donation we can get." )) handshoe says whoever is stealing them is stealing from the animals who count on donations to eat and get medical care. she says if it's food or pet supplies they need, all they had to do was ask. "we can help them out and give them a bag if that's what they need." )for now, the trailer is padlocked and handshoe says she's looking into surveillance cameras that will reach out to the parking lot and catch the thief in the act. in kendallville abby jackson fox 55 news.
