OMAHA — About 2,500 pounds of pet food have been stolen from a storage unit of a nonprofit that helps animals in the Omaha area.
Joni Cisney, who runs Homeward Bound in the Heartland Animal Rescue Inc. with her husband, reported on June 5 that the food was stolen from the animal rescue's storage unit.
She said someone apparently used power tools to break the locks on the unit. According to Cisney, families in the area depend on donations from the nonprofit to help feed their pets.
Cisney said the organization also provides food for animal rescue groups and foster homes.
