PARKER COUNTY -- An animal rescue foundation founder and philanthropist is hoping the search for an animal abuser will get a late boost from a $5,000 increase in the reward for information leading to an arrest.
The total reward is now up to $40,000 for information about the person who left a dog stabbed in the July heat with its muzzle taped shut with electrical tape. The dog, later named Hope, has since recovered and was adopted later this summer by Charlie and Kit Moncrief.
American Dog Rescue Foundation founder and philanthropist Arthur E. Benjamin is offering the additional reward under the condition anyone with information comes forward before midnight on Monday, Sept. 24.
Anyone with information is urged to contact the Parker County Sheriff’s Office at 817-594-3213 or the Parker County Crime Stoppers Hotline at 817-599-5555.
