Pet Helpers Increases Reward for Case of Dogs Dumped in Georgetown Canal
In light of the recent discovery of two dogs bound and dead at the bottom of a Georgetown canal, Pet Helpers has increased its reward fund contribution to $500. Initially contributing $200 to the reward fund for the pregnant, but alive, dog found in a Georgetown canal on Monday night, Pet Helpers now believes the incident is symptomatic of a broader web of animal abuse.
As an organization that serves the entire Lowcountry, Pet Helpers is in contact with the Saint Frances Animal Center and has offered its support.
These cruel acts are intolerable, and it should be made known that they are unacceptable in our community. This type of deliberate and savage treatment of companion animals is something that occurs more often than we would like to think, and the support of the community is crucial in the search for those responsible for these horrific acts.
