AHS Joins PETA and Macon Police in Effort to Find Vandals Who Killed Three Dogs, Injured Others

We can’t let these innocent animals have died in vain.

During the night of Wednesday, October 16, vandals broke into the All About Animals animal shelter in Macon, Georgia and killed three dogs, leaving at least 15 more with serious bite and puncture wounds. Authorities believe the vandals were motivated by dogfighting but have yet to make any arrests in connection with this attack. PETA is offering a reward of up to $5,000 and the Atlanta Humane Society is matching their efforts with an additional $5,000 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the persons responsible for this brutal crime.

“This is one of the cruelest acts of violence I’ve seen in a long time,” says AHS President Rick Aiken. “We are begging for anyone with information, no matter how insignificant it might seem, to come forward. We can’t let these innocent animals have died in vain.”

Anyone with information about the break-in is urged to call Macon Regional Crimestoppers at 877-68-CRIME.
