Kittens Found Slain in Riverhead; ASPCA Puts Up $2,500 Reward

In addition to $1,200 offered by the Suffolk County Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, the ASPCA on Tuesday put up a $2,500 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of whoever slashed the throats of four kittens and dumped the bodies behind a business in Riverhead.

The kittens, were were estimated to be 3 weeks old, were discovered on October 1 in the parking lot of an East Main Street business, according to the Suffolk SPCA.

“This is a truly sickening case of violent abuse, and the heartlessness demonstrated by those responsible is shocking,” ASPCA’s Anti-Cruelty Group Senior Vice President Stacy Wolf said. “While our ultimate hope is that these types of heinous acts never occur, this is a message that cruelty toward animals will not be tolerated in our society.”

Anyone with information about this case is asked to contact the Suffolk County SPCA by calling 631-382-7722. “We thank the Suffolk County SPCA for its commitment to finding justice for these four innocent kittens,” Wolf said.
