The release states that Winston was taken to Cornell Companion Animal Hospital and treated for his injuries overnight. He is currently at the SPCA shelter and is stable, but lost the use of his right eye due to the gunshots.

The County SPCA is offering a $1,000 reward (sponsored by the New York State Humane Association) for those with information that will lead to the arrest of the individual who shot Winston. Those with information are asked to contact SPCA senior investigator Kelly Brown at 607-749-0824 or email at [email protected].
