That’s how I felt upon learning the disturbing news that at least 25 cats were found killed and some hanged in a tree in Yonkers, New York. Their bodies were in varied states of decomposition, and the SPCA of Westchester, which is investigating this atrocity, believes this has been happening for more than a year.
I thought: Who could do that? Why?
You care for and love cats, so you know that no matter where cats live—indoors or outdoors—they are valued. Animal abuse cannot, and will not, be tolerated.
Alley Cat Allies has offered a reward for information that leads to an arrest, but we need to stand not just for these cats, but all cats. Animal cruelty must be prosecuted to the full extent of the law.
Will you join me in fighting for justice for every cat?
This is one of a handful of isolated incidents, and in each case, your support allows Alley Cat Allies to be engaged, and find whoever is responsible. Intentionally killing a cat—pet, stray or feral—is against the law in all 50 states and the District of Columbia.
We treat every case with same seriousness, because every life matters.
That’s why we’ve offered a reward in Lakeland, Florida to help find the person or persons behind a series of vile mutilations.
We’re fully engaged in South Bend, Indiana, where 21 cats and other animals were found dead and stacked in an alley.
And we’re pursuing justice for Larry, a two-year-old pet intentionally shot and killed in January by a Nebraska police officer, who is still on duty after receiving only a written reprimand.
Every killing is wrong, and these were all especially gruesome. Every act of abuse towards animals must be taken seriously. There is a proven link between animal cruelty and violence towards people, and humane education is critical to improving the safety of communities.
Stories like these break my heart, and emails like this are the toughest to write. If we don’t stand for these cats and kittens, no one will. Please join me in taking a stand, not just for these cats, but for all cats.
We couldn’t do our work to save lives without you.
