MIAMI BEACH, Fla. (AP) - Humane Society volunteers in South Florida are trying to raise funds after eight of their nine animal transport vans were vandalized.

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. Wednesday’s crime means animals cannot 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.

Hoffman says it will significantly impact their ability to care for the animals. The repair costs to the vehicles are estimated to be thousands of dollars.
