Oklahoma Alliance for Animals (OAA) is offering $2,500.00

for the arrest and conviction of animal cruelty for Spaz

Following news broke:

BLANCHARD, Okla. – Police are searching for whoever is responsible for targeting a one-year-old dog with a bow and arrow. Erin Dodson came home Monday afternoon to find her pit bull “Spaz” shot full of arrows, the target of animal cruelty. “He wasn’t crying, he wasn’t nothing.” Dodson said. “He just looked at me and he was so, such sad eyes.” Her children couldn’t believe someone would do that to their pets. “No, there’s no way nobody could be that cruel and shoot my dog with a bow and arrow.” Her 13-year-old son, Joey, said. Dodson called police then rushed Spaz to Animal Emergency Center for surgery. Dr. Joe Bills Reynolds pulled three arrows out of Spaz. He has treated many injuries where dogs were accidentally shot, but to see one deliberately targeted like this is disturbing. ‘This is someone’s pet, someone’s kid.” He said. “You know, they just don’t need to be doing that kind of thing. It’s really sad.” Reynolds says Spaz is an incredibly lucky dog. A few inches one way or the other and it would have killed him. “I’m very, very fortunate that these were practice arrows and not the arrows that are more razor-tipped. They would have caused a tremendous amount of more damage to the dog.” For now, Spaz is limping his way to recovery. Doctors say if all goes well, Spaz should be going home Wednesday. Police do not have any suspects so far. If you know anything, call police. The surgery to save Spaz’s life cost about $3000.
