This morning, hearts are breaking for a small dog who was purposefully set on fire in Tuscon, Arizona. The dog, Lovely, was doused in gasoline on May 7 – allegedly at the hands of her owner, identified as 39-year-old Dean Sherfield Finley.
Though Lovely was rushed to Pima Animal Care Center (PACC) for care, tragic news was released on Sunday morning announcing that she had passed away. PACC wrote:
Our hearts are breaking. Lovely went into cardiac arrest this morning and despite the vets’ best efforts, they were unable to save her life. We are only comforted by the fact that she died knowing she was loved, not just by all of us but by the thousands of people who sent in donations, messages of love and support and who were rooting for our sweet girl.
The animal care center added:
There are no words to describe how we all feel today or how humbled and grateful we are to our community who showed an unbelievable amount of love and care for this little dog.
