Press Release Body = February 21, 2007 Scottsdale, AZ---
Cat Galaxy, the radio station for cats is publicly condemning recent acts of animal cruelty against cats in the Phoenix area and calling for those who perpetrated the crimes to be brought to justice.
In the last week, two cats rescued by the Arizona Humane Society were victims of animal cruelty. One was a cat named Valentine that was shot 3 times with a pellet gun and is now recovering in foster care, while the latest victim was found around 32nd Street and Greenway with rubber bands purposely tied around his genitals, which caused portions of the tissue to become necrotic due to lack of blood flow. The cat also had an infection around his scrotum, and he was not able to urinate, causing severe damage to his bladder and kidneys. The cat was then humanely euthanized to end his suffering. AHS officials say someone carried out this act of cruelty possibly two weeks ago and then set the cat lose to suffer.
Cat Galaxy on its Tuesday Night Cat Club broadcast talked about these two cases of animal cruelty, and urged its human listeners that if they have any information about them or know who committed the crimes, to report it to local law enforcement immediately. The station\'s only human DJ also had some strong words for those who committed these terrible crimes against the cats.
\"We strongly urge that if you witness a case of animal cruelty to report it as soon as possible. These two cats like many of the feline victims out there of these types of crimes, don\'t deserve to be treated like this. If you witness a case of animal abuse happening, don\'t ignore it or pretend it\'s not your problem. Pick up the phone and call Silent Witness or your local law enforcement agency. The people that committed these acts of cruelty are despicable and evil individuals and they should be stopped. If you see a crime against an animal happening and don\'t report it, it\'s quite a possibility that your cat could be these people\'s next victim. To the people who committed these atrocities against the two cats, what you did was heinous and disgusting! We hope that you are caught and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law,\" said Nohl Rosen better known on the air as the catprotector.
Rosen also mentioned on the show that keeping your cats indoors is probably another reason to keep them out of harms way and that Cat Galaxy applauds the AHS\'s efforts in helping the two cats and other animal cruelty victims despite the two separate outcomes.
\"The AHS deserves to be thanked for their efforts in helping these cats and many other victims of animal cruelty. It\'s because of them and the other animal rescue organizations in our community that many cats have gotten a second chance at a good and loving home. We here at Cat Galaxy are blessed to have a strong working relationship with many of them so that many cats can be saved and get a second chance. However, when one cat falls victim to animal cruelty we all feel it, and when you\'re a station run by felines you can\'t help but feel angry about these types of incidents and want to help put a stop to it,\" added Rosen.
The AHS and Silent Witness are offering $5,000 for information in each case that leads to the arrest or indictment of the person or persons who carried out each act of animal cruelty.
