Comedian Richard Pryor and former "Friends" star Matthew Perry are adding to the reward for information leading to the arrest of the person who drowned a golden retriever in the surf on the Massachusetts coast.

"It's important to raise the awareness that cruelty to animals is just not tolerable."

Pryor and his wife, Jennifer, have donated $1,000 to the reward fund, Horsley said. They have also paid for a banner to appear at a fund-raising walk for the MSPCA on Oct. 17.

The MSPCA said Perry has also contributed to the fund.

The MSPCA has raised a total of $12,000 thus far.
