The ASPCA is offering a $2,500 reward for information leading to an arrest and conviction in the case of four newborn kittens found with their throats slashed. An additional $1,200 is being offered by the Suffolk County SPCA, the local animal-protection agency leading the investigation.   

According to Suffolk County SPCA reports, the bodies of the four kittens—estimated to be three weeks old—were discovered on October 1 in the parking area of a business in Riverhead, New York.

“This is a truly sickening case of violent, heartless abuse,” says Stacy Wolf, Senior Vice President of the ASPCA’s Anti-Cruelty Group. “We hope the reward offer sends a message that animal cruelty will not be tolerated in our society. We thank the Suffolk County SPCA for its commitment to finding justice for these four innocent kittens.” 

Anyone with information about this case is asked to contact the Suffolk County SPCA by calling (631) 382-7722.

I know I feel bad for these pets


Today these kittens tomorrow someone's child. I hope they get the same fate


Somebody knows this low life, I hope they speak up just to get this nut job off the streets. This was a heartless and cruel crime.


Dear God, what kind of monster could commit such a sadistic act against helpless animals. I hope this reward helps to bring forth information so that the criminal is caught and punished.
We still need much harsher consequences and legal punishment for animal cruelty. I hope the Suffolk County SPCA helps bring this awful person to justice. I hope the press features his face and I hope the cops make him do a "perp walk" for the shame of what he has done. Let everyone see what happens when you torture and kill animals.


The same monster who will end up doing it to a human in a few years.


I agree 100%
