SANTA CRUZ, CA — A charity shop that provides funds to support the support services and programs of the Santa Cruz County Animal Shelter was burglarized last weekend, county officials said.

All donations are tax-deductible and can be brought to the Benefit Shop, which is located at 2260 7th Santa Cruz. They accept the donations Thursday thru Friday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturday 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Those interested in volunteering at the shop can contact Leila Dunn or 831-246-3870.
