On Tuesday, the Associated Humane Societies announced the offering of a $1,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the perpetrator(s) who purposely injured a month-old male puppy with either chemicals or fire.
On Sunday evening, the young puppy, dubbed “Webster,” was picked up by a Society ambulance which had been dispatched to 7th and Webster Street in Newark, N.J.
A Newark Police officer had discovered the grievously wounded puppy and requested assistance from the shelter.
Webster is currently receiving veterinary care at the Associated Humane Societies Newark Office. The staff notes that the severe burning will result in a “long and slow recovery process,” for the puppy.
There is concern over the fate and whereabouts of Webster’s litter mates who are, as of yet, unaccounted for.
