HOLLAND, Mich. — On Tuesday, the Harbor Humane Society noticed something missing from their bank account.
$10,000 had been swiped from the animal shelter’s bank account.
“It’s just disheartening,” said Jennifer Nurenburg, Director of Marketing at Harbor Humane.
She says every dollar makes a difference at the Humane Shelter, so $10,000 is a huge difference.
Thankfully, First National Bank in Holland saved the day, putting the money back where it should be.
“They trust us, and they’re doing their due diligence on their end,” Harbor Humane Society Marketing Director Jennifer Nurenberg said.
But the person responsible is still out there.
“What they think potentially happened is that a check may have been intercepted in the mail,” Nurenberg said.
The check presumably had banking information on it belonging to the shelter.
Meanwhile, law enforcement is actively looking for the culprit, who is presumably from Michigan.
“Everyone can take a lesson from this. It stinks. Someone must have been in a bad place to make that decision. But it’s hard on us. We hope this person will be reprimanded for their choice,” Nurenberg said.
