Pomona, CA – On the evening of November 15, two men mutilated a friendly cat named Scruffy. The heinous crime was captured on video and now the Pomona Police are hopeful that someone will come forward with information about the sickening act in order to help them make arrests.
A surveillance video provides critical details about this animal cruelty case. A white car can be seen parking in front of a business at 560 Union Avenue around 9:30 p.m.
Then, the cat is shot and can be seen flailing in the parking lot.
The men proceed to jump over the fence and walk up to the cat; one man removes a “sharp object” believed to be a knife. The man slices open Scruffy’s body with the object while the other man records the appalling act with his cell phone.
Scruffy’s mutilated body was found the next morning and the Pomona Police, and Inland Valley Humane Society were notified. Employees at CFR Patio have said that Scruffy was one of several homeless cats that they help care for.
Scruffy was just about to be adopted…but her happily-ever-after was cruelly stolen before she was able to enjoy it. Those who knew her are disgusted that her life was cut short in such a brutal manner, and they hope that the men responsible for her death will be found and held accountable.
Animal Victory wants these psychopaths to be found, arrested, and charged! We are hoping to raise funds to help provide a $500 reward for information leading to the identification, arrest, and conviction of the men responsible for this disgusting act.
According to the U.S. Department of Justice, “FBI research indicates that most serial killers, school shooters, and mass murderers tortured animals as children. Another form of abuse, dogfighting, is also tied to criminal behavior beyond the harm to the animals.”
Please add your name to the petition today and share this petition with the hope that it will bring forward the information needed to arrest these monsters before they kill again.
We the undersigned demand that the men responsible for mutilating Scruffy be held responsible for this reprehensible act of cruelty. In court, we want to see these men receive the maximum punishment allowable by law for the charges stemming from this abhorrent act of violence.
Update 11/22/2022: Animal Victory sent cover letter and petition to the judge on May 1, 2023.
Update 11/22/2022: Suspects have been arrested! The Pomona Police said two arrests were made. One of the men had an active warrant for his arrest and he was taken into custody during a traffic stop. Upon further investigation, police learned that the suspect “had committed similar animal cruelty acts on other animals.” The identity of the men has not been released publicly.
Thank you to everyone who signed and supported the petition to find the abusers. Animal Victory is now assisting to help Scruffy’s sweet companion Tiger, pictured below, get adopted.
Tiger’s caretakers from CFR Patio describe him as loveable, loyal, affectionate, and obedient. Tiger is in Pomona, CA. If you are interested in learning more about adopting Tiger, please contact Michelle from our office at Courtinfo@animalvictory.org for more information. We will assist with transporting Tiger to where you live.
Animal Victory Will Now Fight For The Maximum Sentencing.
