The reward for information in a case of animal cruelty in Waterloo has increased to $3,000.
Saturday morning, animal control officers found a severely malnourished Black Lab and Great Dane mix inside of a crate on Independence Avenue. The dog was dead.
The group Agape Fosters has raised the $3,000 in hopes of getting a tip that will lead them to the person responsible for the neglect.
The foster group says it’s obvious the dog suffered from a lack of proper food and water for quite some time.
City workers believe the dog was left between nightfall on February 15th and daylight on February 16th. The dog was found in a ‘Great Choice’ brand carrier.
If you have information, call Agape Fosters at 319-239-2268 or the City of Waterloo Animal Control Services at 319-291-4440.
