Andre Update: New Reward Offered For Info On Puppy Torturer
People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals already has offered $1,000 to anyone who provides information that leads to the arrest of the person responsible for torturing Andre. The Feathers Foundation and the Animal Guardian Network have each matched PETA's reward, and now Valley animal rights advocates are seeking donations to help make the reward even larger
Andre was found about two weeks ago near the intersection of 102nd Avenue and Hess Street in west Phoenix. He was tied in a bag and left for dead in an empty lot. When he was found, Andre's eyes were covered in puss and he had BBs lodged under his skin.
Until last week, Andre's abuse had gone uninvestigated. More on that here.
Dr. Deborah Wilson, a veterinarian with Circle L Ranch Animal Rescue and Sanctuary who helped save Andre, tells New Times that police suspect a teenager could potentially be responsible for Andre's torture.
The hope is that whoever tortured the dog told someone about it. The bigger the reward, the more likely anyone with information will come forward -- that's the idea, anyway.

Anyone with information about Andre's torturer is asked to call the Phoenix Police Department.
