MENANDS - Police in Albany are searching for the suspects responsible for mutilating and leaving three puppies for dead on railroad tracks.
The Mohawk Hudson Humane Society has announced a reward to help bring the animal abusers to justice.
Authorities are taking this case very seriously, especially because they say people who do despicable things to puppies often graduate to hurting humans.
That's partly why they are aggressively working to find the people who left three pit bull mix puppies on the railroad tracks on North Pearl Street in Albany last weekend.
Mohawk Hudson Humane Society in Menands says all three came to them with severe injuries to their left rear paws.
One puppy had a hole through her paw, another had two digits removed -- and on the third the paw was completely removed. One of them eventually died of his injuries.
Public outrage has turned into cash donations. The shelter is offering a $7,000 reward for information leading to a conviction of those responsible.
