Reward Increased to $2K in Jefferson County Dog Shooting

CEDAR HILL, Mo. (KMOX) – The reward for information leading to an arrest in the case of “Dodger” the puppy, shot and left for dead near Cedar Hill, has increased to $2,000.

The three-month-old Labrador retriever mix was found on September 25 dragging himself along Highway 30 in Jefferson County.

Open Door Animal Sanctuary spokesperson Lindsey Burg says Dodger is continuing to improve.

“A Good Samaritan found him and brought him to us. We discovered he had been shot in the spine,” Burg said.

Nature’s Variety, a local pet food maker, donated $4,000 to cover the puppy’s surgical costs.

Thus far, Open Door has not received any leads and needs the public’s help in finding who is responsible for shooting Dodger. If you have any information, the shelter asks you to call (314) 709-2025.
