$5,000 reward offered for capture of culprit behind Sacramento cat burning

SACRAMENTO, CA - A $5,000 reward has been offered for information leading to the apprehension and conviction of the person responsible for a horrible case of animal abuse.

According to Front Street Animal Shelter Care Service Manager Gina Knepp, a resident on Manorside Drive in South Sacramento saw a young kitten walking in the area of Manorside an Meadowglen Avenue on Aug. 9. The resident said they took notice of the kitten because it appeared to be following a person walking down the street.

The next day, the resident found the kitten in his driveway, suffering from severe burns and smelling strongly of gasoline, said Knepp.

The Samaritan took the kitten to the South Sacramento Veterinary Hospital and paid for the necessary treatment, then took the cat home.

Several days later, the person was forced to surrender the 4-month-old male kitten to the Front Street Animal Shelter when its condition did not seem to be improving.

Remember Pet Safety during the 4th of July

Remember Pet Safety during the 4th of July

 County Animal Shelter wants your pets to remain happy and safe in their homes

Sacramento, Calif. – The Sacramento County Animal Care Facility reminds pet owners to plan ahead for the coming 4th of July holiday and keep dogs and cats safe in their own homes.

“Our stray animal population spikes during the 4th of July period. The fireworks stands are open and people celebrate early,” said Dave Dickinson, Animal Care Director. “Dogs and cats get scared and escape. Plan in advance to keep your pets calm and safe in their homes and avoid having to make a trip to the shelter to find your pet.”

Safety Tips:

Resist the urge to take your pet to fireworks displays. You’re asking for trouble, as most pets have a very strong fear of loud, sudden noises which are like to evoke their “flight or fight mode.” Fireworks can cause true terror in a pet.
