    The world is full of jerks, and one slithered out of his or her slime hole Wednesday evening to steal donations meant to help homeless animals.

    The theft occurred at Second Chance Treasures in East Dallas. It’s a retail store operating to raise capital for East Lake Pet Orphanage, the nonprofit shelter and adoption agency set up by East Lake Veterinary Clinic.

    According to an initial first-person report, a distracted store clerk left the sales counter unattended while helping a customer, the reporter of the initial account.

    A sniveling jerk of a theif swooped in, cleaned out the cash register and snatched a donation jar.
    Now the pet orphanage is short of operating cash, and they could use a little help, which can be given right here, because ultimately that help benefits the homeless cats and dogs at the shelter — a no-kill shelter, by the way.

    Somewhere, a thief counts her or his dirty money. Meanwhile, the Deity counts the available methods of karmic restitution.


    Bruce Felps owns and operates East Dallas Times, an online community news outlet serving the White Rock Lake area. He would remind the thief that “God” is “Dog” spelled backward. Coincidence?
