On Monday afternoon, a third shepherd puppy was found tortured and dumped in a trash pile in Oakland. Just two days before, two abandoned and badly injured puppies were found in the same pile of trash. One of the four-month-old German shepherd puppies was missing a paw, and the other pup’s face and mouth was so mangled, she has not be able to eat.

According to CBSBNews, Pali Boucher of Rocket Dog Rescue stated volunteers and Animal Services had searched the entire area on Saturday when the first two puppies were discovered. The third puppy found, also has a broken jaw. It is feared a serial animal torturer could be inflicting these egregious injuries to the puppies. This puppy may not have been from the same litter, but suffers similar injuries.

“It’s a similar break. It’s exactly the same break where the other puppy’s jaw had been broken on both sides,” Pali stated.

Oakland Animal Services have not confirmed the cases are related, but have joined with the Oakland Police Department in an investigation. Pet Food Express is offering a $5,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person(s) involved in animal cruelty case.

“We are offering the reward to encourage someone to come forward who has information about who is harming these puppies so we can stop it from happening again. We are all animal lovers at Pet Food Express and want to protect them as best we can,” stated the company’s owner Michael Levy in a statement.

The four-month-old puppy is being cared for at Oakland Animal Services emergency vet clinic.

    Find the F*K responsible for this abhorrent abuse, and beat the living SH*T outta ’em!

    Prayers for the full recovery of those afflicted souls, and that no more are found…

    Those poor, sweet puppies! I hope they’re able to fix what was done to them and that they can find the great homes they deserve. I can’t imagine the horror and pain they endured! Puppies are sweet and innocent. It takes a real monster .to inflict such harm on them.

    Find the POS doing this ASAP. I wish the justice system would mete out a proper punishment for this monster. The only way for that to happen is if his prison buddies do so, or if he resists arrest.

    Too bad there’s no Dexter for animal abusers / torturers / killers.

    Law enforcement needs to seriously investigate this because if the creature who did this is not found, they could do this easily to a human. Hope these pups survive what this monster did to them.

    My prayers are with this little angel puppy. Hope this monster abuser is caught and receives a lifetime of torture before he gets what he truly has earned in “hell”!

    I hope they catch this S.O.B. how is hurting these poor puppies! Please keep us updated on all 3 puppies on how they are doing! I just pray to God they find the perpetrator that is doing this ASAP!!! A $5,000 reward is a big incentive! I HOPE someone will come forward and tell the authorities who are/is doing this crime because I feel there are going to be more puppies hurt until they are caught!
