UPDATE 2:05 p.m. – There are still no arrests in the brutal beating of an elderly pit bull dog but now there is a reward being offered for information. PETA is offering $5000 for help in nabbing whoever is responsible for beating Abbey the pitbull with a broom handle and dousing her with Drano during a robbery at a Detroit-area home last Friday. The 14-year-old dog is being treated for severe chemical burns to her eyes and is receiving around-the-clock veterinary assistance.

“It’s heartbreaking to imagine the confusion, terror, and agonizing pain that this dog endured when someone burst into her home, poured chemicals in her face and all over her body, and beat her with a broom,” says PETA Vice President Colleen O’Brien. PETA is offering the reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person or persons responsible for the crime.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Hamtramck Police Department at 313-876-7827.

DETROIT, Mich (WLNS) – An elderly pit bull is being treated for a long list of injuries after thieves broke into a Hamtramck home.

Our media partners at MLive report that the suspects doused Abbey the pit bull with Drano gel during the robbery, severely burning the dog.

Jewelry was stolen and the home was vandalized.

A GoFundMe account has been established to help cover mounting veterinarian bills, which have already exceeded $1700. As of Tuesday morning $4150 was raised to pay expenses.

There are concerns that Abbey will lose one of her eyes because of the severity of the burns. No arrests have been made yet.
