Cat impaled with arrow

Reward offered! Cat found with arrow impaled in body

A reward is being offered for information leading to the arrest and conviction of whoever is responsible for shooting a cat with an arrow. The victimized cat was discovered with an arrow impaled in her body near a roofing company in Danville, Virginia.

Amazingly, the cat survived the horrific act of cruelty. The Danville Area Humane Society writes:

When employees of A.S. Pugh Roofing Company on North Main Street came to work this morning, they noticed a tortoiseshell cat that had an arrow lodged in her side. They called the police who responded. The cat was transported to a local veterinary clinic and underwent surgery to remove the arrow.

A representative of Animal Medical Center said, “She got lucky; the arrow high right above her heart and lungs.”

Paulette Dean, executive director, said,

“This, sadly, is a reminder why we urge people with cats to keep them inside. An outside cat is at the mercy of anyone they meet. We are very grateful for the wonderful people at A.S. Pugh Roofing Company.

Information needed

Anyone with information about this act of cruelty is asked to reach out to the Danville Area Humane Society at (434) 799-0843. A $1000 reward is being offered.
