SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) – A local animal hospital is having problems with constant vandalism.
Second Chance Veterinary Hospital has been vandalized multiple times since moving into their Springfield location in May.
Their fence was ruined again last Saturday, the 4th time it’s happened. A window was also shot out with a BB gun.
This is not only a nuisance for the non-profit animal hospital, but it’s also affecting their budget as well.
“We rely heavily on donations and what not so whenever something gets vandalized, it takes away from funds that are allocated for pets in need,” said Julie Sullivan, Second Chance Community Veterinary Hospital director.
The animal hospital has installed signs and security cameras. But so far, the cameras have not prevented property damage.
