The reward continues to grow for information leading to the arrest and conviction of whoever abandoned an a skeletal puppy on the street in Washington D.C. The nine-month-old pit bull puppy, was found across the street from One Eight Distilling on Okie St. NE on July 10 – he was so weak that walking was impossible.

The reward has climbed to $10,000 in this animal cruelty case. The Humane Rescue Alliance law enforcement officers are hopeful that a member of the public will come forward to assist them in making an arrest. There is a lead in the case – surveillance footage shows the man driving a four door, dark-colored sedan, possibly a Dodge Charger, missing its hood.

Chris Schindler, Vice President of Field Services at the Humane Rescue Alliance, said:

“We are determined to bring Shepherd’s abuser to justice, but we need help from the community to do so. We hope this reward will motivate any witnesses or others with information about this crime to come forward immediately.”

Anyone who noticed something unusual, or who has information about the person or car spotted in the surveillance video, is asked to reach out to the animal welfare agency. If you have information, please call 202-723-5730, option 1.

The pup, dubbed Shepherd, is recovering. HRA stated:

Shepherd continues to recover in rehabilitative foster care through the Humane Rescue Alliance. Shepherd is slowly regaining strength and mobility in his hind legs, and now weighs 21 pounds.
