Animal Cruelty Reward**

Reward Offered
Seattle Animal Shelter Investigates Possible Animal Cruelty
in Lower Magnolia
Severely emaciated dog found dead

SEATTLE – The Humane Society of the United States has offered a $2,500 reward for information resulting in the arrest and conviction of the person(s) responsible for the death of a dog found in the Interbay area last Tuesday. Animal cruelty in the city of Seattle is a crime. If convicted, the person responsible for this crime could face a fine of up to $5,000, a year in prison, or both.

On Tuesday, Seattle Animal Shelter humane law enforcement officers responded to a call about a deceased dog found next to Moss Green Inc. at 3625 Thorndyke Ave. W. The officers found an extremely emaciated tan and white pit bull, with a silver “pinch” collar around its neck. The deceased dog had no other identification. The state of emaciation was so advanced that seasoned officers were disturbed when examining the body. It appears the dog had been kept indoors and then dumped either just before, or after its death.

“This is a tragic and unfortunate incident. This dog clearly suffered tremendously prior to its death. Finding out who allowed this to happen is important so they can be held accountable for such a heinous and unnecessary act of animal cruelty,” says Seattle Animal Shelter Director Don Jordan.

If anyone has information relating to this crime, please contact the Seattle Animal Shelter at 386-7387, ext. 2 or email me at
