(SAVANNAH, Mo.) A vet clinic in Savannah has asked for the public's help in tracking down the suspects in another animal cruelty crime.

Angel's Vet Express said they were contacted by the Andrew County Sheriff's Department on Saturday about two dogs that were found on the bank of the 102 River.

Gary Silverglat, owner of Angel's and M'Shoogy's, said the dogs were beaten to death and then thrown in the bank. He said they don't have suspects at this time, but that several people were seen four-wheeling in the area around the time it happened.

He described the animals as a black pit bull mix and a blue healer mix. Both were found wearing collars.

"If someone is missing those [dogs] or notices that all the sudden they're gone out of someone's neighborhood, please contact us because someone out there as they were dumped, beat them to death," Silverglat said.

Angel's has offered a $1,000 reward for anyone with information that could lead to an arrest. Silverlgat said all tips are anonymous, just call 816-324-5824.
