Macon, Ga. — Sometime on Wednesday night or early Thursday morning, unidentified vandals—believed to be motivated by dogfighting—broke into the All About Animals animal shelter near Central City Park and killed three dogs, leaving at least 15 more with serious bite and puncture wounds. One of the dogs was cut open with a sharp instrument across the front of her body and down her legs. Police have yet to make any arrests in connection with this attack. That’s why PETA is offering up to $5,000 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the persons responsible for this violent crime.

Would you please consider sharing this information with your audience? It might be the only way to apprehend those responsible for this heinous act.

“People who intentionally harm animals are cowards who take their issues out on the most defenseless beings available to them, and studies show that these people often move on to human victims,” says PETA Director Martin Mersereau. “PETA is urging anyone with information about this case to come forward now, before these violent culprits strike again.”

Anyone with information about the break-in is urged to call Macon Regional Crimestoppers at 877-68-CRIME.

“Almost all of us grew up eating meat, wearing leather, and going to circuses and zoos. We never considered the impact of these actions on the animals involved. For whatever reason, you are now asking the question: Why should animals have rights?” READ MORE
