(ABC 6 News) - The Humane Society of North Iowa says a large stack of mail containing charitable donations was stolen from their mailbox this week.
The shelter said they had recently sent out an annual newsletter that contained a request for donations and since then they have been receiving about 50 donations a day, except for Tuesday, when mail was presumably stolen from their mailbox.
The shelter said a majority of the donations they've received were in the form of personal checks.
"We have no way of knowing whose donations were in Tuesday's mail," said Humane Society Executive Director Sybil Soukup, "We are hopeful that anyone who sent in a check that is not cashed in the coming weeks will call us so that we can explain what has happened."
The shelter said alleged theft has been reported to the Mason City Police and the United States Post Office.
The Humane Society of North Iowa was one of the shelters that took in a group of Samoyed dogs after the ASPCA and Worth County Sheriff's Office removed nearly 170 animals from the White Fire Kennel near Manly in November.
