• SPCA Reward Increased to $5,000 Thanks to Compassionate Donor

    The SPCA for Monterey County (SPCA) is now offering a $5,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person or persons who clipped a carabiner type clip through a dog’s skin and attached it to a chain connected to clumps of concrete on Armstrong Road in unincorporated Salinas on or around August 3rd. Monterey County Animal Services (MCAS) is investigating the case. 

    The reward was previously announced at $1,000, but a compassionate donor increased the reward to $5,000 to help find the person responsible. 

    The SPCA is offering this reward to help MCAS with their cruelty investigation. While the nonprofit SPCA and the municipal MCAS are not related, they both work to help animals in our community. 

    The young dog, now named Neil, is recovering at MCAS.

    “We hope this increased reward will inspire someone to come forward with information about this horrible case of animal abuse,” says Beth Brookhouser, SPCA Director of Community Outreach.

    If you have any information about this case, please contact Monterey County Animal Services at 831-769-8850 or report online at www.mtyhd.org/animalcomplaints . If you know any any other animal being neglected or abused, please contact the SPCA at www.SPCAmc.org/report-cruelty or 831-373-2631.
