Reward offered to help catch dog killer

FLORIDA – Curtis Lumber President Jay Curtis is offering a $5,000 reward to whomever can help police catch those responsible for shooting and killing two dogs during a robbery Wednesday.

He announced the reward via the Curtis Lumber’s PetAPalooza Facebook page.

Montgomery County sheriff’s deputies said someone entered the home on Route 30 in town between 6:30 and 9 p.m. Wednesday when the homeowner was out of the house. During the burglary, two dogs were shot and killed with a .22-caliber gun. Electronics, two non-functioning printers and a laptop were also stolen, deputies said.

“It was simply the right thing to do. My wife and I are putting up the money personally. Someone who would do this would have no problem killing a person next time,” Curtis said this morning.

If caught by police work alone, the reward would be split three ways. Half of the funds would be donated to animal abuse investigations and the remaining half would be split between Ayres Memorial Animal Shelter and the Montgomery County Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals shelter.

Curtis said if anyone wishes to add to the reward fund, they can contact MCT Federal Credit Union in Amsterdam.
