Thomasville Times Enterprise


June 10, 2014


THOMASVILLE — A second anonymous donor has added another $2,000 to the reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of those responsible for abandoning injured and starving dogs on Thomas County roads.

The first reward was for $1,000 for information on each dog. After photographs of the dogs and a story appeared in the Tuesday Times-Enterprise, the second anonymous donor came forward and doubled the reward.

The total reward for information about the two dogs stands at $4,000.

Also, the donors also will give $200 each to anyone who reports an abused or neglected animal or a dog used for fighting.

“The information must lead to an arrest and conviction of the person or persons responsible for these cruel acts,” said Pat Smith, Thomas County animal control director.

A starving female dog was found dumped alongside Magnolia Road. A dog that had been fought — with scars and open wounds — was found at the intersection of Magnolia and Metcalfe roads.

A second dog seen at the intersection has not been caught.

The dogs had been reported to animal control, but repeatedly avoided being caught.

Eventually, passersby saw the dogs, called 911 and helped animal control officers capture the canines.

On Tuesday, several people provided information about ownership of the dogs. Each lead is being investigated.

Senior reporter Patti Dozier can be reached at (229) 226-2400, ext. 1820.
