Published: March 16, 2024 at 10:42 AM Author: PENNY EIMS

Richmond, Virginia – On the night of January 14, someone doused a black and white cat in accelerant and set him on fire. The cat suffered horribly before dying from the extensive burns that covered his body.

Surveillance footage captured the horrifying aftermath of the burning cat running in a fruitless attempt to escape the flames that engulfed his body. But the cat was unable to survive the savage cruelty.

Chipps Peters, with Richmond Animal Care and Control (RACC), tells 12 On Your Side News: 

“There’s no words that really justify the horrific nature of this act of cruelty. It’s unconscionable. I don’t know how someone can do something like this and continue on with their day. Some people like, ‘Oh, it’s just a cat, or it’s just an animal.’ This is a human being setting another living thing on fire. Our concern is someone that can do that is someone that is unsafe in the community.”

In 2019, the horrific burning of Tommie the Pitbull in Abner Clay Park led to Virginia passing a bill, making animal cruelty a felony crime.

Animal Victory is shocked by this horrifying savage act of cruelty and we want whoever is responsible to be found, arrested, charged, and punished! Please add your name to the petition which will be presented to court officials when this monster is identified and charged!

Please share this petition to help raise awareness of this crime, with the hope that the individual responsible will be found and brought to justice!


  • The incident happened on the evening of January 14, 2024, in the area of Richmond Highway and Sisco Avenue.
  • A $10,000 reward is offered for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person(s) responsible.
  • Tips can be made to Richmond Animal Care and Control at (804)-646-5573, or via email at You can also remain anonymous by calling Crime Stoppers at (804)-780-1000.
