The Humane Rescue Alliance is offering a $5,000 reward for information leading to the identification, arrest and conviction of the person or persons responsible for allegedly stabbing a dog at least 10 times.
On Thursday, June 10, HRA received a call about a dog named Cash, who had wandered away from his backyard and returned to the home about an hour later with wounds on his back, back end area and at the base of his tail.
HRA transferred Cash to our emergency medical partner, Friendship Hospital for Animals, for treatment. FHA determined Cash had at least 10 injuries that were consistent with stab wounds and performed emergency surgery to repair the wounds. Cash is recovering and doing well. Once stabilized, he will be transported to HRA’s medical center, where our staff will provide ongoing care.
Humane Law Enforcement officers at HRA have launched an investigation to find the person or persons responsible for allegedly stabbing Cash and are offering a $5,000 reward for information in the case. Officers are looking for anyone who may have noticed anything unusual involving Cash between 8:30 and 10 a.m. on June 10 on the 4400 block of F St. SE. If you have information, please call 202-723-5730, option 3.
“We rely on tips from our community to solve cases of animal cruelty, and Cash’s case is no different,” said Chris Schindler, vice president of field services at the Humane Rescue Alliance. “We urge anyone with information to come forward as soon as possible.”
