VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) -

A monetary reward is being offered by the Brooks County Sheriff's office for any information that leads to the conviction and arrest of individuals for a case of animal cruelty that occurred the weekend of December 20, 2008.  Three cats were severely injured by fireworks at a mobile home park off of Soaring Heights Drive.

The sheriff's office can be reached at 229-263-7558.  You can also leave an anonymous tip at www.brooks-county.org.

One of the cats had to be euthanized due to the extent of her injuries.  Another cat, Blackie, is stable but seriously injured.  She is recovering at Baytree Animal Hospital in Valdosta.

The third cat, Little Jim, is in critical condition.  Without necessary surgeries, which could reach a total of $20,000, he will have to be euthanized.  If you would like to donate money to help cover the cost of the cats' veterinary bills, please contact Karen Gunter with St. Francis Ministries at 229-794-8512.
