(CA) Animal-abuse line launches


July 19, 2012

Her black lab, Garry, inspired Yvonne Russell to start the animal tip line. Garry is a rescue dog and it sickened Russell to hear his story.
Paw Tipsters will launch next week, she said, in co-operation with Winnipeg Crime Stoppers, to motivate people to report animal abuse, whether it be a neighbour mistreating pets or a dogfighting ring.

Paw Tipsters will provide rewards, just as Crime Stoppers does, when an anonymous animal-cruelty tip is called in and leads to justice.

Raising funds for the rewards is Russell's job. A tipster can receive as much as $2,000 if the tip helps police make a conviction.
