ALBANY, GA (WALB) - An Albany animal rights advocacy group is offering a reward in the disturbing case of 15 animals killed Thursday in East Albany.

14 cats and one dog were found dead in the 2500 block of Cherokee Drive. A necropsy was done on the dog Friday, but the results won't be known for at least a week. Neighbors believe someone left out poisoned food.

Members of a group called PACK will hand out cards in the neighborhood hoping someone will give information anonymously.

PACK Founder Laurie Jenkins said "Anyone who truly may know something but fear that they might not need to be identified. Just let us know. We can pass it on to our investigators and Police."

Albany Police are still investigating the animal deaths as a crime. PACK is offering a reward. Anyone with information can reach the PACK by writing P.O. Box 198, Albany Georgia 31701.

Or call CRIME STOPPERS at 229-436-TIPS.
