Stathum: Second dog set on fire in a month!
Ok my animal saving friends. I am begging for your help. This is Stathum's reality. These graphic photos are very hard to look at, but we aren't here to sugarcoat the hideous act of burning an animal. Whoever inflicted these horrific wounds on an innocent animal should be punished.
Everyday at the hospital Stathum must undergo the debridement of dead burned tissue, to promote the healing process of his horribly burned back. Can you imagine the pain he must have felt when his body was set on fire? We are shaken to our core, that these sick individuals are still out there, and can do this again. This is our second "burn" dog in less than a month!
Our sweet Lilly had the same burns, and she is on the mend now. This sick act is suspected as being a task for gang initiation. We cannot imagine how anyone could hurt an innocent animal like this. Stathum will need to be hospitalized for at least 2 weeks to receive daily debridements on his back, and make sure he doesn't become infected. Sadly his burns are much deeper than Lilly's. Burns are extremely painful, and must be carefully watched and cleaned.
Please help us to give this so deserving boy his second chance. We are very grateful for those who have already supported our boy. Please keep him in your thoughts and prayers. He is on painkillers to alleviate his pain, and his spirit is not broken!! He knows he is surrounded by love and people who care about him.
We have partnered with Second Chance Rescue to create this week's animal saving t-shirt design! Please, if you can, purchase one of our Stathum + SCR items below! With your help this victim of abuse can get the second chance at life he deserves! Will you join us?
