PETITION TARGET: Shelby County Sheriff’s Office
A dog in Shelby County, Indiana is still fighting to recover after suffering serious chemical burns.
The two to three-year-old male pit bull terrier was found wandering along the road. Emaciated and in intense pain, the badly injured dog had deep wounds along his back, over his head and even inside his mouth — most likely from attempting to lick the chemicals from his body.
Cared for by the Shelby County Animal Shelter, the dog — later named Justice — was unable to eat due to deep lacerations in his mouth caused by the burns; he had to be fed via a feeding tube.
To date, there are no clues as to where Justice came from or how he received his horrific burns, although he was wearing a collar and staff at the shelter say he is well trained with a sweet temperament.
The Shelby County Animal Shelter is offering a $5,000 reward for any information that leads to the arrest and conviction of the people responsible. Email: [email protected] or call 317-392-5127.
Sign this petition urging the Shelby County Sheriff’s Office to use all possible resources to find the person/s responsible for this cruel abuse, and prosecute them to the fullest extent of the law.
