According to WKYT News, a seven-month-old puppy in Lexington, Kentucky, has to undergo plastic surgery because someone maimed her young body with a chemical which left her fur marred with profanity.
The pit bull pup, dubbed "Felicity," was burned by the chemical agent and then abandoned - someone left her chained to a fence. On August 21, the Lexington Humane Society, which is helping Felicity recover from her trauma, described the abuse to their Facebook followers:
LFACC responded to a complaint regarding an abandoned canine on Campbell St. Once officers brought in Felicity, a young pup, they realized she had been chemically branded by her owner and a profane word was spelled out on her hind quarters.
LFACC needs the community's assistance in identifying the owner(s) of this sweet girl and any information you may have in this case. Felicity has now been transferred to LHS where she will receive plastic surgery and continued love and care.
Since the time that Felicity was discovered, she has been recuperating at the home of a Lexington Humane Society staff member; LHS wrote:
Felicity is loving all of the attention she is receiving. The staff is fostering her and providing her the love, attention, and training she so deserves. She is scheduled for her plastic surgery next week.
The Lexington Humane Society has offered a $1,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person(s) responsible for Felicity's abuse. Anyone with information is asked to call the Lexington-Fayette Animal Care and Control at (859) 255-9033, ext. 229.
