An animal cruelty investigation has been launched following the discovery of a severely burned dog in North Charleston, South Carolina. As reported by Live 5 News, the badly injured dog was found on Sunday

In a news release, the Charleston Animal Society recounted the details:

Charleston Animal Society is treating a severely burned dog found in North Charleston on Sunday. The black staffie-mix has been nicknamed “Harvey” because he was found on Harvey Avenue near I-26 and Azalea Avenue.

Charleston Animal Society Associate Director of Veterinary Care Dr. Leigh Jamison, said:

“We are providing this animal treatment to reduce his pain and to help his healing.” Adding, “His prognosis right now is guarded.”

Reward offered and information needed

A $1,000 reward is being offered by Charleston Animal Society for information that leads to the arrest and felony conviction of those responsible for Harvey’s condition.
