The Friends for Animals of Metro Detroit is offering a $1,000 reward for information about a dog that was burned by its owner.

The dog was rescued Friday night by Dearborn Police after a resident contacted them when finding the dog. She was brought to FAMD for treatment and assistance.

“This dog is very sweet and in spite of the horrific nature of the injuries, very trusting of people. It appears as if she may have been burned numerous times over a period of time. She was treated today and will recuperate at the shelter,” said Elaine Greene, executive director of FAMD.

“Cruelty to animals makes us sick. Our staff has named the dog Phoenix because we want to see her rise again,” said Greene.

“Somebody had to have seen this horrible incident. Please contact the shelter at 313-943-2607 with any information so we can prosecute this person," Greene said.
