PALM BEACH COUNTY, FLORIDA: Alley Cat Allies is offering a reward of $7,500 for information that leads to the arrest and conviction of the person or persons responsible for killing several cats in the town of Lake Clarke Shores. According to investigators, the cats appear to have been shot. Anyone with information is asked to contact the Lake Clarke Shores Police Department at 561-964-1515 and ask for Lieutenant Fisher.

“Alley Cat Allies is seeking justice for the victims of this apparent serial cat killer and acting to protect more cats in the area from unimaginable cruelty,” said Coryn Julien, communications director for Alley Cat Allies. “The well-known link between animal cruelty and violence toward people also factors into the gravity of this crime, which must be taken very seriously and, once we have found the perpetrator, penalized to the fullest extent of the law.”

Investigators say each cat was found deceased in bodies of water in the area of Carambola Road and Carambola Circle of Lake Clarke Shores. The horrifying situation has been ongoing for weeks, with cats going missing as far back as several months.

Every animal deserves to be protected and safe from animal cruelty. All 50 states, including Florida and the District of Columbia, have enacted laws criminalizing acts of cruelty toward animals.

Again, anyone with information for the cruelty investigation is urged to contact:

The Lake Clarke Shores Police Department at 561-964-1515. Ask for Lieutenant Fisher.
