Shelter takes in severely burned dog who was set on fire

An animal shelter in Summerville, South Carolina, has taken a severely burned dog into its care. According to Tuesday’s ABC News 4, an animal control officer picked up the grievously wounded dog after he was discovered wandering in a woman’s yard off of Quaker Road in St. George.

The dog, a mixed-breed terrier, has extensive burn wounds across his body – Frances R. Willis SPCA Executive Director Kim Almstead told the Journal Scene that the emaciated dog, “reeked of gasoline and kerosene.”

The young dog, estimated to be just one to two years of age, is receiving round-the-clock care to help him survive the extensive burning. His fate remains uncertain because of his injuries, Almstead stated “We have to go through the first 24 hours because…he is already in shock.”

Anyone with information about this cruelty case is asked to call Animal Control at 843-832-0015. Donations to help with this dog’s care can be made to the shelter’s website here.

    There is no way to catch all of the monsters who hurt, torture and maim precious animals …… however…. I truly get great satisfaction thinking what will happen to them in the hereafter!! The good Lord gave us animals to be friends, family and to take care of. The monsters out there hurting these babies will pay with a very, hot, horrible forever in hell!
    I find great comfort in that.

    Oh my God that poor dog.Only a evil coward would do something so horrible to an innocent animal.I hope they catch who did this and someone sets the coward or cowards who did this and sets them on fire before they go to court because unless they get a tough no nonsense judge who will give him hard prison time he will probably get off easy or a stupid plea bargain.I wish I could be the one to throw gasoline on these worthless evil cowards and light the match.When are we going to start getting tough on these evil worthless cowards who prey on innocent animals don’t these stupid people who let them off easy know that they will prey on people next.Wake up people and give them what they deserve.They don’t deserve second chances .They don’t give the poor animals second chances why should they get second chances.My heart goes out to this poor dog and all the other animals who have been tortured like this.I’m praying for you little dog.To the people who do these horrible things I hope you get what you deserve you worthless scum I don’t even consider you human.

    The fact that this little one is still alive says much! To the thing or things who did this one day you will have family or you may already have family! To you and yours you will suffer or someone you care about will suffer as you made this little one suffer! If this baby loses this battle then so shall you or the one you care about! Think I’m wrong? Trust me I’m never wrong!

    If the dirtbag who did this is ever caught don’t bother to prosecute them, they will get little to no punishment – just stick their useless butt through a wood chipper and do the world a favor. I hope this poor innocent dog survives and gets the safe loving home he obviously never had.

        Are you SOME SORT of narcissus that is smarter, more educated, a self -centered social butterfly that is one step above everyone else or do perhaps have some flaws too?

        At least I know how too read the articles. I guess since Ellen hasn’t been around you’ll find someone else to target. WTG!
