Reward Increases in Animal Cruelty Case

Norred & Associates, an Atlanta-based security firm, will contribute $5,000 to a reward fund for information leading to the arrest of the individual(s) who shot a mixed breed pit bull in the head with an arrow with a metal tip. The dog was found wandering the streets in Southwest Atlanta Tuesday evening, Sept. 13. The dog, aptly named "Arrow," is expected to recover from its injuries.

To anonymously submit information related to the dog's injury, call the Help Stop Dog Fighting hotline at 877.215.2250 or submit information at www.helpstopdogfighting.com.

"We need to apprehend this person before another animal or person is injured," said CEO Greg Norred, of Norred & Associates.

The tip line was established as part of the company's overall pro-bono campaign to stop dog fighting.
