Queens Dognapping Reward Reaches $5,000: PETA

Queens, N.Y. — PETA is offering a reward of up to $3,000 for information leading to the arrest and conviction on cruelty charges of the person who stole a 10-month-old pit bull mix named Off-White from his elderly guardian on 88th Avenue in Ozone Park on Saturday afternoon and took off on a scooter. Together with the reward offered by Off-White’s family, the total claimable amount offered to help bring him safely home is now up to $5,000.

Police are investigating but don’t yet have any leads, so PETA is asking for the public’s help. Would you please share this information and surveillance video?
“This dog is in danger after being snatched away from his distraught guardian,” says PETA Senior Vice President Colleen O’Brien. “PETA urges anyone with information to come forward so that Off-White can be reunited with his family and the dognapper held accountable and stopped from inflicting any more harm.”
Tipsters should contact the NYPD Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477) or, for Spanish, 1-888-57-PISTA (74782).
PETA—whose motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to abuse in any way”—opposes speciesism, a human-supremacist worldview. For more information on PETA’s investigative newsgathering and reporting, please visit PETA.org or follow the group on TwitterFacebook, or Instagram.

People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals

People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) is the largest animal rights organization in the world, and PETA entities have more than 9 million members and supporters globally. PETA opposes speciesism, a human-supremacist worldview, and focuses its attention on the four areas in which the largest numbers of animals suffer the most intensely for the longest periods of time: in laboratories, in the food industry, in the clothing trade, and in the entertainment business. We also work on a variety of other issues, including the cruel killing of rodents, birds, and other animals who are often considered “pests” as well as cruelty to domesticated animals. PETA works through public education, investigative newsgathering and reporting, research, animal rescue, legislation, special events, celebrity involvement, and protest campaigns.
