IDA staff at Hope Animal Sanctuary in Grenada, Mississippi deal with a lot of animal abandonment. Our priority is to provide a safe haven for animals in need, but we also want to hold accountable those who contribute to animal cruelty. That’s why we’ve launched a new campaign, complete with $750 rewards.
For years, Hope Animal Sanctuary has saved thousands of abandoned animals needing refuge. Each spring, abandonment increases – litters of unwanted puppies and kittens dumped by roadsides, left to fend for themselves. Unwanted litters of animals that their guardians could have easily prevented by spaying and neutering their animals.
In an effort to hold these animal abusers accountable, IDA’s Hope Animal Sanctuary is now offering a standing $750 reward for the arrest and conviction of anyone caught abandoning animals in Mississippi – not just dogs and cats, but ANY animal. Those who know of an abandonment within Mississippi are asked to contact us at 662-809-4483 or ERU@idausa.org. If the tip leads to arrest and conviction of the person(s) abandoning an animal, we’ll pay you a $750 reward. It’s that simple.
Important – this program is only for the state of Mississippi.
