PETA Offers Reward of Up to $5,000 in Dog-Dumping Case

FORT WAYNE, INDIANA (January 16, 2021) — PETA is offering a reward of up to $5,000 for information leading to the arrest and conviction on cruelty-to-animals charges of the person(s) who dumped an emaciated dead dog in a dumpster at 2130 Hobson Road at Baldwin Creek Apartments. The dog, a black, brown, and white pit bull mix, is estimated to have been between 6 and 12 months old.
