MIAMI BEACH, Fla. (AP) - A South Florida Humane Society received an outpouring of community support after eight transport vans were vandalized.

Earlier this month, Humane Society of Greater Miami Executive Director Laurie Hoffman says the vandals forced open the hood, cut cables and stole the batteries, leaving the vehicles inoperable. That meant animals could not be taken to hospitals to receive emergency care, pets can’t be transferred to Pet Supermarket to be put up for adoption and food and supplies can’t be transported to the shelter.

But within days, new car batteries and cables were donated, along with installation and service fees. Replacement vans were also donated while the vans were being fixed. A local security company also donated a new security camera system.

Hoffman said thanks to the help, the organization is now operating at full capacity.
