A Collinsville animal shelter has to give a donation back after a law firm made a mistake.
The "Ward Wiseman Animal Haven" got a call in March saying it was the beneficiary of $189,000 from a woman in Arizona.
The shelter founder, Susan Babbit, planned to put most of the money into an endowment so the shelter could feel financially secure.
Babbit later found out the law firm handling the woman's will gave the money to the wrong shelter. The money was meant to go to the animal shelter in Collinsville, Illinois.
