Animal advocate Kim Sill and the Jason Debus Heigl Foundation are offering a reward totaling $5000 for information that leads to the identification and arrest of the individual responsible for an act of cruelty that resulted in a number of small dogs being dumped on Imperial Highway on April 27.
"We are participating in the reward money being offered to find whoever did this despicable thing," Katherine Heigl said in a statement. "People have to be held accountable for this kind of lack of humanity and compassion."
The incident, which took place last Wednesday evening, saw approximately 15 small white dogs dumped on Imperial Highway (State Route-90), a popular route between eastern Los Angeles and the beach communities next to Los Angeles International Airport (LAX).
Witnesses reported a scene of complete mayhem with the terrified dogs desperately trying to avoid being hit by oncoming traffic and the sound of screeching brakes as drivers attempted to avoid the animals. They described how one of the dogs was hit by a car which did not stop and dragged 20 feet before emerging from underneath the vehicle behind.
