According to information provided in a press release to the National Dog News Examiner on Thursday, the reward for information leading to a terrier mix's abuser has been increased once again.
According to the rescue agency, Providing for Paws, the reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person(s) responsible for grievously wounding the small dog, named "Patty," is now $10,000.
Patty has had two surgeries since she was discovered on Sept. 12, wandering in a neighborhood on Detroit's south side.
Amazingly, despite the horrific abuse, Patty has remained in good spirits.
Patty's veterinarian, Dr. Lindsay Ruland of the Emergency Veterinary Hospital in Ann Arbor, stated:
She has remained in good spirits through all of our treatments and even wags her tail now when she goes out for walks. We at EVH feel blessed to be caring for such an amazing little girl.”
Now that her condition has been upgraded from critical to serious, we can focus more of our efforts and care on getting her eating well and regaining muscle mass,”
The Michigan Humane Society (MHS), The Humane Society of the United States (HSUS), and Providing for Paws are offering a combined reward that has been increased to $10,000 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the individual(s) responsible for committing this vicious act.
Anyone with information in this case is asked to contact the MHS Hotline at (313) 872-3401.
