KENESAW, Neb. (KSNB) - The Adams County Feline Coalition is offering a reward to help find the people responsible for shooting an arrow through the head of a family cat.

A Kenesaw resident contacted a volunteer with the ACFC around 1 p.m. Sunday after their pet cat returned home with an arrow in its head.

Bootzy was rushed to surgery, and is in stable condition at this time.

The ACFC is a non-profit trap-neuter-release organization founded in February 2019. They trap feral cats in Adams County. Once the cats are neutered or spayed and given a rabies vaccine, they're released back to where they were trapped.

A volunteer with ACFC checked traps placed near a feral colony at 2 p.m. Sunday to find they were damaged and destroyed. They reported both incidents to the Adams County Sheriffs Office.

A reward is being offered for information leading to the arrest of the people who committed these crimes.

Animal cruelty in the state of Nebraska is a Class III-A Felony.

The Adams County Feline Coalition set up a GoFundMe page to raise money for a reward for information leading to the arrest of the person who shot Bootzy. If a reward is never given, the funds will go to the Hastings Community Foundation.

Bootzy is currently being take care of by the Hilltop Pet Clinic.
