JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

At least 300 animals at the Animal Rescue Fund's shelter in Jackson are without air conditioning.

The shelter's unit was stolen early Thursday morning.

ARF, which is located on Mayes Street, was forced to put fans throughout the shelter to keep the cats and dogs as cool as possible.

Charles Jackson, who helps runt he rescue center, says a car in the parking lot was also burglarized.

A report has been filed with the Jackson Police Department.

ARF operates on donations and Jackson says replacing the air conditioner is an expense that was not calculated into this month's budget.
