A reward offered for finding the person or people responsible after a dog and cat were found dead with their mouths taped shut has surpassed $34,000.


The animals were found in an alley in the 200 block of 99th Avenue S.E. The area is just east of Macleod Trail in the city's southeast. (Google Maps)

As of Sunday at 1 p.m. MT, $43,101 had been raised. 

A Siberian husky and a six-month-old kitten were found a week apart in a Willow Park alley, just 10 metres apart.

Calgary veterinary clinic Vets to Go came forward with a $5,000 reward Thursday for anyone with information that would lead to an arrest in the case. 

A website soliciting donations has almost raised the reward to four times its original amount.

“People have just been inundating us by email and phone, on our Facebook page, basically saying, I want to support, where can I  send money, how can I contribute’?” says the clinic's' Greg Habstritt

Anyone who recognizes either animal or has any information is encouraged to contact the Calgary Humane Society protection and investigations department at 403-205-4455.
