HELENA- WEST HELENA, Ark. —  The Humane Society of the Delta is working towards implementing new security measures to keep their animals safe.

In July, WREG reported three of the shelter’s dogs were killed after someone released them from their cages overnight.

It’s believed they were used as bait dogs for practice.

One of the dogs was dead when employees arrived the next morning while the other two had to be put down.

Since then, Urban Security out of New York has donated 16 cameras to the organization.

According to THV11, the state-of-the-art system will start recording and even alert employees when someone steps on their property.

But to get everything up and running properly, it’s going to cost the shelter approximately $8,000.

They have set up a Go Fund Me page to help in that endeavor.
