Search continues for dognapped pitbull

In December, a young, malnourished pit bull named Ginja was brought to Buffalo Animal Shelter after police broke up a nearby dogfighting ring. According to The Buffalo News, Ginja’s owner, Shannon Richardson, was charged with six violations of the New York Agriculture and Markets Law, which outlines minimum standards of animal care.

A month later, Ginja was reported missing. Initially, $2,000 was raised through the fundraising efforts of local animal rights activists. Recently, a New York City animal rescue group called Guardians of Rescue has contributed $5,000 to the reward fund.

Animal Rights attorney Matt Albert and a group of advocates going by the name of “Ginja’s Gang” are working alongside Guardians of Rescue to bring Ginja home safely. They hope that the financial incentive will encourage those with connections to the dogfighting ring to step forward and provide information about Ginja’s abduction and current whereabouts, as she most likely continues to fight for her life.
