It was during the late summer when Madelyn Rivera’s adopted cat Campbell ran away from her home. Rivera, who had the cat microchipped, says she never gave up hope in finding him.
‘We went from this block to the next block,” Rivera said. “We asked our neighbors to help us. But nobody had seen him. So we reported him to the SPCA.”
Rivera was thrilled when the SPCA told her they had found him on Sunday. But her joy quickly turned to horror when they told her what happened.
“I’m hearing, ‘Hey, we found Campbell,'” Rivera said. “I’m like, ‘Oh, great!’ And then it was bad news.”
The bad news was that Campbell was the victim of a brutal act of animal cruelty. Officials say two men set him on fire in the Olney section of the city Sunday morning.
