The Animal Rescue League of Boston is offering a $5,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the sadistic culprit who repeatedly tortured a young dog in Quincy, Mass. The Animal Legal Defense Fund is adding another $2,000 to the reward.
In what is being referred to as the worst case of animal torture ever seen by vice president of animal welfare for the Animal Rescue League of Boston veterinarian, Dr. Martha Smith Blackmore stated that X-rays showed:
"too many broken bones to count and terrifyingly, some of her joints that had been dislocated looked as though they'd been pulled apart."
A Facebook page, Help Find the torturers of Puppy Doe continues to search for more information about this innocent dog tortured beyond what most humane supporters can even bear to read. Found on Aug. 31 on Carrolls Lane near the Quincy Medical Center campus, the one to two year old dog could not even walk. The person who found Puppy Doe thought she had been hit by a car, but upon examination the injuries were so egregious, it was decided the only humane act would be to relieve Puppy Doe of her suffering. Experts agreed the dog would never be able to live pain free.
Her necropsy revealed starvation, dislocated limbs, a fractured skull, stab wounds, broken ribs and a disturbing split in the dog's tongue to make her look "serpent like."
Perhaps the most profound and even more heartbreaking news of the past few days has been information and pictures from the person who originally owned Puppy Doe. The dog's name had originally been Kiya, and she had been re-homed through an ad on Craigslist. According to the unidentified previous owner, she was not allowed to bring Kiya to a new apartment because of breed restrictions.
The slideshow will show how a happy puppy's life changed into a torturous year of unbelievable cruelty.
Help to find Kiya's torturer. There might be other dogs enduring the same kind of sadistic treatment.
