Kerr County Crimestoppers offering reward for information related to recent animal cruelty incident

Kerr County Crime Stoppers is offering a reward for information that leads to the arrest of the individual(s) who left two deceased dogs on the side of a road last weekend in Center Point.  Kerr County officials were dispatched to the 100 block of Elm Pass Road on Sunday, June 12, to investigate a report of possible animal cruelty and illegal dumping.

Authorities believe the dogs may have died due to extreme exposure to the heat.  People with any information related to this case can call (830) 896-8477, or use the P3 Tips app.  All tips remain anonymous.

The American Red Cross has some tips on how to keep pets safe during extreme heat:

-Never leave your pet in a hot vehicle.

-Limit exercise on hot days.

-Walk your pets in the grass.

-Make sure they have access to plenty of cool water and shade.

In warm weather, heat stroke is a common problem for pets and can lead to severe organ dysfunction and damage.  Dogs with short noses, overweight pets, and those with thick fur coats are especially prone to heat stroke.

Some signs of heat stroke include heavy panting;  red gums;  fast pulse rate;  inability to get up.

If you think your pet has heat stroke, it is very important that you take their temperature rectally.  If it is above 105 degrees, the easiest way to cool the animal down is with a water hose.  Contact your veterinarian as soon as possible.

Warmer weather also brings backyard barbeques, so keeping your pets away from the grill can prevent them from eating foods that can be poisonous for them.  Avoid raisins, grapes, onions, chocolate and products with artificial sweeteners.
