Brooklyn, N.Y. – PETA is offering a reward of up to $5,000 for information leading to the arrest and conviction—including for felony cruelty to animals—of the person who shot and killed Jennifer Ynoa and her dog, a brown-and-white pit bull, inside the Salim Smoke Shop near the intersection of Dekalb and Franklin avenues on Sunday night.
“This dog suffered both the agony of being shot alongside his guardian and the helplessness of being unable to protect her, as loyal dogs invariably want to do,” says PETA Senior Vice President Colleen O’Brien. “PETA urges anyone with information to come forward so that their killer can pay the price for this horrific crime.”
Anyone with information should contact the NYPD Crime Stoppers hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477) for English or 1-888-57-PISTA (74782) for Spanish—or submit a tip via the website or via Twitter DM at @NYPDTips.
PETA—whose motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to abuse in any way”—opposes speciesism, a human-supremacist worldview. For more information, please visit PETA.org or follow the group on Twitter, Facebook, or Instagram.
