PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – The Pennsylvania SPCA says rewards leading to arrests in two animal cruelty cases are being offered by generous animal lovers in the region.
The PSPCA‘s Wendy Marano says the public outcry after the burning death of a dog last week (see related story), and another similar cruelty case Thursday night (see related story), has resulted in rewards.
“We are announcing a reward fund which is started at $1,500 for Hercules. Right now, he is holding his own and we’re glad about that and we think he’s going to pull through,” Marano said.
In the case of Chloe, a female pit bull who died after being set ablaze last week, a $5,000 reward is being offered.
Both cases are still under investigation.
