An animal shelter in Danville, Virginia, has had enough of seeing animal abuse cases. They are so tired of it that they are now offering rewards for 2 separate cases of animal abuse.
The Danville area Humane Society is offering a $1000 reward for a dog brought into their facility on Monday. The person who brought the dog into the facility said that it was thrown from a car.
Paulette Dean is the shelter’s executive director, who said that there is a lot of emotional trauma involved for the dog. The dog is too thin and has bad teeth.
8 cats, including 4 kittens were brought in on Saturday after they were found outside of a restaurant in Danville. Someone put them in a closed tote and left them.
$1000 is being offered as a reward for information involving those kittens. In addition, another $5000 is being offered as a reward by PETA.
“It’s horrifying that people would do this when, in each case, a 10-minute drive would have brought them to the shelter and our answer would’ve been, ‘Yes, of course we’ll take them,‘” said Dean, according to 10News.
