An anti-crime group in San Diego is offering a $1,000 reward for information leading to an arrest in the apparent poisoning deaths of 10 dogs at a trailer park in the city's Logan Heights neighborhood.

The dogs were found this weekend by animal field officers from the San Diego Humane Society and the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals. Officers were responding to a call from the El Rey Trailer Plaza.

"The severity of the animals' conditions leads us to believe that this is a case of intentional animal cruelty," said Randy Lawrence, director of investigations for the Humane Society and SPCA.

People with information are asked to call San Diego County Crime Stoppers at (888) 580-8477 or to leave information on the tip line at www.sdcrimestoppers.com.
