Online PR News – 06-June-2013 – LOS ANGELES – Boston Buddies, Inc. rescue organization today announced it is offering a $5,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of the those responsible for the brutal torture and death of a dog found in east Los Angeles.

"The person or persons responsible for this horrific case of animal abuse are a danger to our community," said Rachael Farmer, President of Boston Buddies. "We are committed to helping ensure justice is served and urge anyone with information relating to this case to come forward."

The black and white Boston Terrier, found wandering near the intersection of Cogswell Road and Ferris Road in El Monte, was brought into the Baldwin Park shelter as a stray on May 29 with severe apparent chemical burns on approximately 80 percent of its body. Based upon the severity and type of injuries, the dog appeared to have been tortured and starved.

Volunteers from Boston Buddies, a Southern California animal rescue organization based in Orange County, took the dog, named "Henry" by Baldwin Park shelter staff, to a veterinarian for care. His wounds were so severe that much of his hair was gone and large pieces of skin were melted away to the muscle below. Henry did not survive.

Anyone with any type of information regarding the injured Boston Terrier that may help officials identify and arrest the individuals responsible should email: contactus@bostonbuddies.org or call 310-364-4543.
