DANVILLE, Va. (WFXR) — While the Danville Area Humane Society may not have authority in North Carolina, that won’t stop the nonprofit from trying to get justice for some kittens that were victims of animal cruelty across the state border.

The humane society says at least one person in a “grayish/blue” Honda Accord threw five small kittens out of a car onto the side of Park Springs Road in Providence, N.C.

However, people who witnessed the incident reportedly brought the kittens to the Danville Area Humane Society, which announced a $1,000 reward for information that leads to the arrest and conviction of the person(s) responsible for this “cruel act.”

If you know anything about the incident, you are asked call the humane society at 434-799-0843 so the information can be passed on to North Carolina authorities.

The Danville nonprofit says the kittens’ veterinary treatment will be paid for through the April Hogan Shelter Fund while the humane society’s portion of the reward, if given, will be paid through the Earl Merricks Stop the Cruelty Fund.
