SPOKANE, Wash. -- The Spokane Humane Society’s donation truck was stolen over a week ago and now it is making it harder for needy animals to get food.

Staff at the Humane Society said it has been tough dealing with the lack of cargo space their few other vehicles have. Every day the non-profit uses its small fleet of vehicles to pick up and drop off large donations.

The truck is a 1993 Ford F-150 with the Humane Society logo on the doors.

The stolen truck is now making it hard for the shelter to do its job.

“We’ve pulled the seats out of one van that we have and we’re trying to make due. We’re trying to get that pick-up back even though it’s kind of a beater,” said Executive Director Dave Richardson.  

Local businesses have donated parts and even tired to keep the 20-year-old truck going.

The Humane Society said it can not afford to buy a new truck because most of the money goes to animals.

If you see the truck you are asked to call crime check.
