Albany--   Recent Albany cat killings have gotten the attention of The Humane Society of the United States.

They're offering a reward to help bring anyone involved with this severe animal cruelty to justice.

Monday night, animal rights and protection group the PACK or Promoting Attitudes, Alliances and Actions Consistent with Kindness for all animals held a meeting to discuss cases of animal cruelty in Albany.

The Regional Program Director for the Humane Society of the US told members it takes a whole community to make sure cruelty to animals doesn't take place.

"Citizens need to be involved. It's just like any other crime. They need to be involved in their community. They need to report this to the proper officials. Animal cruelty needs to be taken seriously," said Humane Society of the United States Regional Program Director Richard Rice.

A $2,500 reward is being offered to help bring in the people involved with the cat killings.
