A dog in El Paso, Texas, suffered severe injuries in a suspected acid attack. As reported by the El Paso Times, the 10-year-old dog, named Chato, has widespread burns on his side, legs, and stomach from the chemical.
Information about the cruel incident is included in a fundraiser created on Chato’s behalf:
On Wednesday February 3, 2021 a heartless person threw acid on my ten year old dog Chato. Chato is under antibiotics, pain meds and is getting treated for his burns. Half of his body is burned, his paws are burned he cannot stand for long, chest, belly, right hind leg and right rib cage. He will need to go to the vet daily to clean his wounds. His veterinarian said Chato’s healing journey will take months. I’m asking the community to please support his recovery.
And a request for information:
The incident occurred around 2 p.m. near John Hayes and N. Zaragoza. A police report has been filed, but we do not have evidence on the person who committed such a horrendous act. If you know who committed such horrible acts please contact me, you will remain anonymous. Thank you to every single one of you, from the bottom of my heart.
