A burglar, cat or otherwise, stole a van over the weekend in East Point that an animal rescue organization uses to transport cats to the veterinarian and to stores for adoption, leaving a LifeLine Animal Project official yowling.
LifeLine field coordinator Mickie Blair acknowledged that the 2000 Dodge Caravan, which the nonprofit purchased just four months ago with $1,100, can be replaced once another round of donations can be raised. But she considers file boxes inside the van filled with microchip information, rabies certificates and cat adoption records going back a year irreplaceable.
“I just want to know what dumpster they put it in,” Blair said. “Just tell where the file boxes are. I will dig through any dumpster.”
Blair had delivered cat food and litter to an elderly volunteer in East Point late Saturday night and then decided it was safest to spend the night at a friend’s residence nearby, to avoid driving on roads shared by St. Patrick’s Day revelers. By 6 a.m. Sunday, the van was gone.
