GOLDEN RETRIEVER SET ON FIRE

When you think you've seen it all, you are always proven wrong.
The inhumanity of human's is unbearable at times.

A young (1-2 y/o) Golden was found as a stray and brought into the Lancaster Shelter with burns down his entire back. Our doctors believe that either lighter fluid or gasoline was poured down his entire back and he was purposely set on fire!!

He is being treated at AMC now for severe burns and we are hoping to stave off infection which is what we are most concerned about at this point. The nerves are actually "killed" by such deep burns so thankfully he is not really in pain since he was in the shelter for several days in this condition before we were able to secure his release.

We have named him Fergus - Irish for Powerful. And of course like all Golden's he is still loving and forgiving and just wanted to be held..

We are totally dependent upon you, our friends, for help with all of the vet bills. Any donations are always so very much appreciated so we can always be there when dogs like Fergus.

Bless you Barry Jacobs for waiting in line today for three hours and driving for another two and saving this baby....

(WE LATER FOUND OUT IT WAS NOT CAUSED BY FIRE, BUT WORSE, BY ACID BEING POURED ON HIM - DOWN THE LENGTH OF HIS BODY!!)
