Animal advocates are certain that someone in East Germantown knows who doused a mixed-breed dog with gasoline on Sunday and set her afire.
The reward for that information climbed Tuesday to $1,000 as enraged animal lovers rallied to support the Pennsylvania SPCA and its effort to bring the offender to justice.
Chloe, a young pit-bull mix, was discovered suffering from severe burns on the 700 block of Gray Street by workers from the city's animal control. Her entire face had been burned, along with her belly and most of her legs, said the PSPCA's Wendy Marano. Chloe was transferred to an shelter hospital in New Jersey for emergency care.
