People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) said it is offering a reward of up to $5,000 — in addition to a $1,000 reward offered by Rodriguez — for the return of Maia, a chihuahua mix.
Rodriguez’s sister, who posted that Delta said it will not be actively searching for the dog anymore, started a GoFundMe to pay for “professional pet detectives, Legal consultation (fees are included), search dogs services, animal communicator services, reward flyers, surveillance services…etc.”
Amid reports that Delta offered $1,800 to Rodriguez for the loss of the dog, Delta issued a statement this week saying it is “committed to finding resolution and that’s why attorneys for Delta and the customer continue to be engaged.”
“No offer of compensation has been made or agreed to at this early stage,” Delta said.
The airline also said its employees “remain heartbroken for this customer’s experience.”
