Saturday March 17, 2012
Reward Offered for Information Leading to Arrest/Conviction
LOUISVILLE (March 17, 2012) Louisville Metro Animal Services’ (LMAS) is investigating an extremely serious animal cruelty and neglect case and is hoping the community can help with information leading to an arrest/conviction. Earlier this month, a black and white, female terrier mix was rescued by Animal Control Officers after she suffered severe trauma to the head as well as other injuries. She was found on the 4600 block of Frel Road in Louisville.
“These acts of cruelty and abuse are unacceptable,” said Director of Metro Animal Services Justin Scally. “As a community, we need to come together to make sure all animals are treated with the proper respect. Our officers and staff will continue to do everything we can to protect Louisville animals and bring them the justice they deserve. Our goal is to ensure people who commit violent crimes against animals are punished accordingly.”
Blessing, the injured dog, is recovering in a foster home thanks to help from our partner, The Shamrock Arrow Fund. But the hope is to find the person/people responsible.
If you have any information about the acts of cruelty concerning this dog, please call Metro Animal Services at 502-363-6609. The Humane Society of the United States is partnering with LMAS to offer a $2,500 reward for any information leading to the arrest and conviction.
