PONTOTOC, Miss. (AP) - An international animal protection group is offering a $2,500 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of whoever’s responsible for starving and dumping two dogs in Pontotoc County.

In Defense of Animals, the group that operates Hope Animal Sanctuary in Grenada, Mississippi and the Mississippi based Justice for Animals Campaign announced the reward Thursday.

The pair of emaciated female dogs had apparently been left for dead just off of Highway 278 in Pontotoc on June 9. Their rescuers named the dogs Hope and Faith. Authorities say Faith died, while Hope is receiving specialist care but she is expected to make a full recovery.

Anyone with information on who dumped the animals should contact In Defense of Animals at 415-448-0048 or Hope Animal Sanctuary at 662-466-0906.
