JEFFERSON DAVIS PARISH -- In Jefferson Davis Parish, the reward for information on who threw a live puppy in a plastic bag -- out on the side of the road -- has risen to $1,100.
The puppy is only a few days old and hasn't even opened her eyes yet. She was brought to the animal relief foundation in Jennings, which is a volunteer group that helps with animal cruelty cases.
Volunteer member Donna Fontenot has been caring for the puppy since it was found last week.
She says when they got the puppy, she was cold and still had her umbilical cord attached.
"Somebody had put it in a grocery, plastic bag and tied it, and just like chunked it out the window I guess or just threw it in the road. You could tell it was deliberate, you know, and it wasn't like they thought maybe the puppy was dead because it was very much alive and moving. And we got it warmed up and she started eating and we brought her to the vet and had her checked out and she seems to be healthy," Fontenot said.
The Animal Relief Foundation is offering a $1,100 reward for any information leading to the responsible party.
