Atlanta – At 4:30 p.m. on Friday, April 10, Fulton County Animal Services received a report that a pit bull had just been thrown into a dumpster behind the Goodwill store on Roswell Road in Buckhead. Animal control officers found a terrified but healthy dog in the dumpster, along with his dog bed. The dog, now called Broham, is available for adoption, but police have yet to determine who abandoned him.
That’s why PETA—whose motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to abuse in any way”—is offering a reward of up to $2,500 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person or persons responsible for this crime.
“Throwing away a defenseless dog like a piece of garbage demonstrates a blatant disregard for others’ suffering,” says PETA Senior Director Martin Mersereau. “PETA is urging anyone with any information to come forward immediately, before someone else gets hurt.”
Anyone with information about this case is encouraged to contact Fulton County Animal Services at 404-613-0358.
