UPDATE: reward offered for the labradoodle set on fire near Atlanta

Listeners were outraged after I talked about the innocent dog set on fire outside Atlanta on December 5.

The reward money continues to grow for information. 

"He was in a lot of pain. So, he was pretty down," said Tina Lee, founder of Dog Days Rescue in Kennesaw which has taken over responsibility and temporary care of the dog. Lee says the dog, since named "Will," will remain in the hospital for at least four more weeks.

"It was heartbreaking. Heartbreaking. Just completely gut wrenching. He came out of the emergency vet where they had him before he transferred to us, and we put him in my car, and it was absolutely heart breaking," said Lee, about Will's condition when he first was found.

According to a police incident report, two people saw the dog running on fire in Decatur. Then it says, "the witnesses doused the canine with water," and the dog suffered second and third degree burns.

"Once the pain medication and everything started to kick in, his spirits came up. He's really a sweet dog. It may be the pain killers talking, but he's a pretty sweet dog. We've had a lot of tail wags, kisses," said Lee, who has been posting updates to social media almost daily. "There's probably at this point over 300 people email, message, call that are interested in adopting him. At this point we are nowhere near looking at adopters."

Up to $10,000 is being offered through crime stoppers, PETA and Dog Days Rescue. 

If you have any information on whoever is responsible, contact: Det. Watson with DeKalb County Police at 404-286-7990 or Crime Stoppers at 404-577-TIPS.
