Humane Society offers $5,000 reward for information on abandoned poodle

November 15, 2018

The Humane Society of the United States is offering a $5,000 reward for information leading to the person or people responsible for the death of a poodle found starving in a San Antonio alley.

The 8-year-old poodle, named Hope, was found jaundiced and cold in an alley in the 5800 block of Babcock Road. Her fur was heavily matted, with mold growing across her body.

Animal Care Services officials said the shelter’s veterinary staff tried to save the poodle, but in her last hours all they could do was try and make her comfortable.

HSUS officials said donation from a board member allowed the standard cruelty reward to be raised from $2,500 to $5,000.

Anyone with information about the case can call the city’s 311 call center.
