Vigil Held in Macon for Dogs Killed After Shelter Break-In

An animal shelter held a vigil in Macon Sunday to honor three dogs that were killed after a break-in.

People gathered at Central City Park to remember the dogs that died after someone broke into the All About Animals shelter, released "aggressive" dog breeds and made them fight.

Those attending the event say the vigil has brought the community together and started the healing process, because to them they weren't just dogs, they were family. "They are just so loving. They hug you, kiss you. Just to know the pain they went through tears me up," says volunteer Mendy Harrison.

The Macon Police Department is still searching for the burglars.
