Suspect(s) Unknown - We need your help!

The Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) is offering a reward of up to $2,500 for information leading to the identification, arrest and conviction of the person or persons responsible for this atrocious act of negligence.

On Saturday, May 12, an emaciated dog was found in the 9400 block of 26th Avenue Southwest. The badly emaciated dog was immediately rushed to a veterinary clinic but did not survive.

Details of where the dog had been for the last 30 days are unknown. If you recognize the dog and have seen him or know where he has been over the past several weeks please call Seattle Animal Shelter Enforcement Supervisor Ann Graves at (206)386-4288. The case number is 5319. Any information about the dog's whereabouts is vital to helping determine the circumstances around the dog's condition.

"To intentionally starve an animal that relies solely on you for its care is a truly heinous act," said Dan Paul, Washington state director for The Humane Society of the United States.

"Americans have no tolerance for this type of abuse against the creatures who share our world."

Animal cruelty is a Class C felony punishable by 5 years in prison, a $10,000 fine or both.

The Seattle Animal Shelter is available for field operations seven days per week, 9:15 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. The phone number is (206) 386-PETS(7387).
