Poor Tammy. Warning: upsetting image below.

My mum received an email about Tammy the dog who was burnt really badly and had to be put to sleep.

Please be warned: if you’re squeamish and/or get upset about cruelty to animals, the photo below is NOT for the faint-hearted human. After reading it, my mum was in tears and gave me some extra big hugs. Strangely, she also apologised to me for some of the bad things that humans do to dogs.

The article in the photo is from the Daily Voice. Tammy’s human owners wanted to punish her for jumping over the wall into the neighbour’s place. They fetched her and put her in her kennel and set it alight. The SPCA had to put her down. The SPCA removed the other two dogs from these humans and are pressing criminal charges against them.

A lady called Hillary Faulmann is co-ordinating a petition so that the human owners are given the maximum punishment for what they did. She will forward all names onto the Daily Voice, who has agreed to forward the signatures to the SPCA to use in the prosecution of these humans.
You can email her in support at hfaulman AT bremner DOT uct DOT ac DOT za.

Poor Tammy. Sending her lots of gentle licks and hugs across that rainbow bridge.

My mom cried too. It is just so wrong to do that to one of God's creatures. These people clearly don't deserve to own any animals for the rest of their life and definitely deserve a prison sentence. Hugs across the rainbow bridge.
