Fort Wayne, Ind. – PETA is offering a reward of up to $5,000 for information leading to the arrest and conviction on cruelty-to-animals charges of the person(s) who dumped an emaciated dead dog in a dumpster at 2130 Hobson Rd. at Baldwin Creek Apartments. The dog, a black, brown, and white pit bull mix, is estimated to have been between 6 and 12 months old.
“This dog deserved a safe and loving home, but instead, someone threw him away like a piece of trash,” says PETA Vice President Colleen O’Brien. “PETA urges anyone with information to come forward immediately so that whoever is responsible for his suffering and death can be held accountable.”
Tipsters should contact Fort Wayne Animal Care & Control at 260-427-1244 or Crime Stoppers at 260-436-STOP.
PETA—whose motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to abuse in any way,” and which opposes speciesism, a human-supremacist worldview—urges anyone unable to care for an animal to seek help from local shelters and never abandon them.
