The Atlanta Humane Society is offering a $2,500 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person or persons responsible for shooting and seriously wounding Siddie.

The reward fund, furnished by the Holland M. Ware Charitable Trust, encourages tips leading to the arrest and conviction of persons responsible for animal cruelty.

"This is a horrific act of animal cruelty," said William Shaheen, president, Atlanta Humane Society. "It is imperative that those responsible for this terrible act are caught so that we can prevent this from happening in another neighborhood, to another family. It is our hope that the reward will encourage citizens to do the right thing and report anyone who is treating animals unkindly."

Contact Sergeant T.C. Medlin with the DeKalb County Police Department at 404-294-2645 with information regarding this act of animal cruelty.
