The Columbia-Greene Humane Society/SPCA would like to thank Sheriff Greg Seeley and the Greene County Sheriff’s Office for the outstanding job they did in investigating and apprehending Paul C. Bull for alleged animal cruelty crimes against Penny.


“We are very grateful for the joint effort between Greene County District Attorney’s Office and the Greene County Sheriff’s Office in making an arrest in under twenty-four hours for the heinous crime against Penny, we feel confident that there will be justice for Penny. Well done by all!” said Ron Perez, President of the Columbia-Greene Humane Society/SPCA.


In addition, CGHS/SPCA would like to thank the media that, with their coverage, assisted in finding the alleged owner of Penny, including WRGB Channel 6, WTEN Channel 10, WNYT Channel 13, Spectrum News, the Register Star/Daily Mail, Bill Williams from Oldies 93.5 FM and 98.5 FM The Cat, and the thousands of people that shared the photo and story on social media.


And lastly, we’d like to thank the hundreds of people that made contributions to aid in Penny’s recovery, which included children dedicating their birthday parties to raise funds for Penny and the dozens of get-well cards to Penny from children and adults . . . thank you!


We’d like to assure all interested parties that Penny is receiving the very best care available, and we can guarantee that she will be adopted to her forever home, never to experience the neglect and abuse she lived through again.
