PETITION TARGET: San Bernardino Police Department

Ember, a three-month-old black Lab puppy, was set on fire and abandoned in San Bernardino, California, in what appears to have been a purposeful act of animal cruelty according to the city’s Animal Services Department.

The defenseless puppy suffered excruciatingly painful wounds to her face, ears, paws, and groin — most likely the result of being set of fire, according to the vet who first treated her. Photos of the horrific injuries show bright red, torched skin where her fur looks to have been set aflame.

Some of the wounds are so red it appears the uppermost layers of her skin may have burned off.

The severely burned puppy was found abandoned in an office parking lot alongside another three-month-old Labrador Retriever mix puppy, as reported by KTLA News 5. When the City of San Bernardino’s Animal Services Department found the puppies, they rushed the dogs to a vet out of concern for Ember’s gruesome injuries.

Ember has had to remain under veterinary care due to the seriousness of her injuries, according to the City of San Bernardino Animal Services.

Puppies are loving, trusting, sentient animals. No puppy deserves to experience the terror or pain of being set on fire and then left for dead.

Sign our petition urging San Bernardino authorities to thoroughly investigate and apprehend the person(s) responsible, before they have the chance to harm another animal and/or human.

Anyone with information related to what Ember suffered is asked to contact the San Bernardino Animal Services Department at (909) 384-1304 and reference A563955.
