NAFA Ups Reward Fund in Jonesboro Dog Cruelty Case

SEPTEMBER 7, 2006 - Posted at 4:20 p.m. CDT

 

JONESBORO, AR - Northeast Arkansans for Animals (NAFA) has increased the reward total for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person or persons responsible for the intentional binding and drowning of two dogs found last week in a pond off Prescott Street in north Jonesboro.

"This type of behaviour will not be tolerated in Jonesboro," said NAFA spokesperson Wannda Turner of the gruesome finding on August 30.  "The condition of the dogs when found was truly horrifying.  The amount of suffering that the dogs must have endured at the hands of the maliciously cruel individual is hard to comprehend."

NAFA is currently offering more than $800 in reward money in the case.  Also, during the organization's pet adoption event this Saturday (1-4 p.m.) at the Jonesboro Petco store, NAFA will be accepting additional donations to continue to raise the reward to above $2,000.
