The outpouring of support to find those responsible in a case of animal cruelty continues as the reward in the case grows.
Waterloo animal control officers discovered a dead dog in a pet carrier Saturday on Independence Avenue. The dog was emaciated and found lying in its own feces.
Officers believe the dog was left between nightfall on February 15th and daylight on February 16th.
Agape Fosters says it appears the dog, a black lab and Great Dane mix, had been denied food and water for quite some time before its death.
The group started a $500 reward fund to find whoever is responsible for the dog’s neglect. Thanks to sharing the story on Facebook, the reward has now grown to $4,000.
