PETA Offers $5,000 Reward After Two Dogs Were Found Dead In Southeast Memphis

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (localmemphis.com) - PETA is offering a reward of up to $5,000 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person(s) responsible for the death of two dogs in southeast Memphis.

PETA says the dogs, a male and female, each about 1-year-old, were found dead about 10:00 a.m. the morning of Friday, January 27th. They were in a travel carrier at Barbera and Cotton Plant Roads.

PETA says Memphis Animal Services has offered a $500 reward in the case. They are hoping someone may have seen a person with the carrier dropping the dogs at the location.

"The community needs to know what happened to these dogs and why their bodies were dumped like litter on the side of the road," says PETA Vice President Colleen O'Brien. "PETA urges anyone with information about this case to come forward immediately so that whoever committed an act of cruelty to animals can be held accountable."

Anyone with information about this case is encouraged to contact Memphis Animal Services at 901-636-1412.
