Group offers reward after someone tries to set cat on fire

WASHINGTON, DC — The Humane Rescue Alliance is offering a $5,000 reward for information that leads to the arrest and conviction of the person responsible for setting a cat on fire.

On April 18, the Human Rescue Alliance says officers were responding to a call on the 3200 block of 28th St., SE, after they were tipped off that someone tried to set a short haired cat on fire while it was confined in a trap.

The organization passed out fliers showing a photo of the cat inside a cage and very close to burned newspaper.


The Human Rescue Alliance is investigating if you have any information reach out to or give them a call at 202-723-5730.
