Reward offered in dog killings

An anonymous donor has offered a $600 reward for information on the shooting of two pit bulls last week, AnimalSave spokeswoman Judi Caler said Friday.

“These pointless killings are so inhumane and abhorrent that AnimalSave and all those who care about animals need to step up … and prevent this from ever happening again,” Sue Finlay, AnimalSave president, said in a statement.

Caler said the incident made her sick when she learned about it.

“It’s just needless; it’s pointless,” Caler said. “The poor animals.”

The leashed and collared dog bodies were found on south county’s Wolf Road around 8 p.m. Feb. 3.

One dog reportedly had been shot three times.

Sheriff’s Lt. Ron Smith said he is investigating information provided by a dog-owning neighbor.

Those with information on the shootings are asked to call Smith at 265-1596.

AnimalSave is a nonprofit that rescues animals, encourages spaying and neutering, and promotes animal welfare and responsible adoption.
