Elisa wrote about it: three fires set by arsonists destroying an outdoor animal shelter in Philadelphia. The response is impressive: within three days the public have raised $22,000 through crowdfunding to rebuild.
It seems to me that there is more good than bad in this story. Stray Cat Relief Fun, a non-profit managed this outside cat rescue facility. An arsonist or arsonists completely destroyed it three times over a two week period. Was this a failed attempt to send cat rescuers a signal to stop?
A fundraiser on GoFundMe was launched and, as mentioned, to great success. The $22k will be used to rebuild the shelters including higher fences and security cameras, reports One Green Planet.
Sadly, police and the SPCA are yet to catch the criminals. We were told too that the arsonist also attacked cats and threw them in the Delaware River but no cats have been killed as far as they are aware. This appears to be conflicting information. Perhaps someone can clarify.
At the end of the day, good certainly does overcome the evil perpetrated by senseless criminals.
