LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — A former president for the Nevada Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals is said to have sold an SUV that belonged to the nonprofit and kept the money, as well as used the animal shelter's debit card for personal use, according to the attorney general's office.
According to a criminal complaint, Kathy Jung faces two counts of felony theft.
As the NSPCA president, Jung directed shelter operations and controlled the nonprofit's money for several years.
The money and cars donated to the nonprofit are intended to help the shelter as well as care for and adopt out homeless animals.
Jung resigned along with the rest of her board in 2019.
