SHELBY COUNTY, Ind.  –  The Shelbyville/Shelby County Animal Shelter has provided an update on Justice, the badly-burned dog rescued in November.

Justice was found wandering the streets of Shelby County and taken in by the shelter. He had suffered severe chemical burns and needed multiple surgeries, special medical care, and lots of love and attention. 

The shelter recently posted new photos of Justice to social media and provided an update on the dog’s health.

“His tail never stops wagging….His appetite is very good too. Because he is feeling much better and stronger his personality is really starting to shine. Justice is definitely an affectionate dog that appreciates his foster parents and caregivers at IndyVet,” the shelter said.

The shelter also thanked everyone who has sent care packages to Justice, saying that Justice “definitely feels your love and support.”

“We greatly appreciate your steadfast dedication and love for him. Together, we all share in his incredible recovery. Thank you for donating. Thank you for sharing his story. Thank you for praying and having faith,” the shelter said.

Police are still looking for whoever is responsible for Justice’s horrific injuries. The shelter is offering a $10,000 reward for information that leads to an arrest and conviction.

The shelter is dedicated to finding whoever hurt Justice, saying, “We will never stop until the monster responsible for his horrific injuries is arrested and convicted. We want justice.”
