NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) – All the animals are safe at the Nashville Humane Association after a break-in over the weekend.

It is unclear what items were taken from the building. Still, Metro Police are investigating the break-in at 2:30 a.m. on Sunday. Humane officials said all animals were unharmed and accounted for. 

"Thank goodness all the animals were safe, unharmed, and accounted for. They are worth more to us verses the replaceable items stolen," Nashville Humane Association posted on its Facebook page. 

The suspects left shattered glass, and when visiting the facility this week, people may still find random pieces of broken glass. People are advised not to touch the glass and alert a team member.

"Thankful to Metropolitan Nashville Police Department who were quick to arrive, volunteers and staff who came in extra early to clean up mess/shattered glass, and to all the customers who visited our shelter Sunday with complete understanding how to walk through the maze of caution tape with care," Nashville Humane Association posted on its Facebook page. is now with you on the go!
